Study & Teaching
Associated with its research topics, CBL focuses on various teaching activities.
On the one hand, study programmes in the subject area of biodiversity and sustainable land use are organised and administered at the CBL. On the other hand, the employees themselves carry out teaching.
We are engaged in cross-faculty teaching development on the topic of sustainability and support a qualitative improvement of theory and practice through networking in close exchange with the Green Office, the Department of Studies and Teaching and intensive cooperation with students.
For this purpose, a round table on "Teaching sustainability together across faculties", November 2022, was launched.
With the University of Göttingen joining the "Nature Positive Universities" Alliance in December 2022, a greater focus on campus-wide biodiversity monitoring and concrete measures will be designed and implemented.
