Continuous assessment of course work

Participation at first session is obligatory!

The lecturer can invite students to a grade-relevant discussion about partial achievements.

Aims, contents and method of the course

This replacement event for the Field Internship Namibia, which has been postponed until autumn 2021, focuses in particular on the 30 to 30 goal and what it means for indigenous peoples and other local communities. IMPORTANT: Subject to the final approval, it is planned that all participants can also participate in the FP Namibia (with a cost subsidy from the university). The FP should therefore focus on the issue of the EU Green Deal proposals, including its importance and involvement of Africa. TheCOP 15 Convention on Biological Diversity(CBD) in Kunming, China,and its possible adoption of similar principles will be another major area of interest.

Empirical research is primarily to be carried out virtually/digitally. In principle, this can take place from anywhere, and is not confined necessarily to Vienna. Against the background of whether the Green Deal includes Indigenous and other local communities, interviews with representatives of international organisations, government and NGO institutions and - most importantly - activists (e.B. FFF, Extinction Rebellion, but also more institutionalised agencies such as Global 2000) and scientists with a focus on species, nature and climate protection are to be conducted.
