Hubs – contact partners for interested community colleges or course instructors

The climate-fit Hubs are pivotal to the successful implementation of the project. With their expertise, regional presence and extensive regional networks, they support the development of the courses and help them become established in the respective regions. They provide regional and organisational junctions for ‘climate-fit’, help organise new venues, and supervise those that are already up and running. Our Hubs are happy to help you and answer your questions.

Currently the regions Northern Germany and Southern Germany each have a Hub. And from summer 2020, there will be a new Hub for Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) and Berlin; together with the new hubs they can now offer climate-fit venues in Saxony, NRW and Berlin. Alongside the existing Hubs, further Hubs will gradually be established in various other regions.

Are you interested in offering climate-fit at your local community college? Or would you like to become a course instructor and teach about global as well as regional climate change, climate protection, and adaptation to the effects of climate change?

If so, and you would like more information on the course content and format, please contact our climate-fit partners ecolo - Agentur für Ökologie und Kommunikation for Northern Germany, ifpro - Institut für Fortbildung und Projektmanagement for Southern Germany, or KlimaDiskurs.NRW for North Rhine-Westphalia.

We look forward to hearing from you!
