Bicycles offer an environmentally sustainable and space saving means of individual transportation in cities and are especially well suited for short to medium-length routes. Today, cyclists in the city of Hamburg often find themselves in unsafe situations.
Population and production growth have resulted in a demand for higher capacities of urban transportation systems. Today, traffic is the number one occupier of public space in Hamburg. That has led to unsatisfactory conditions in regards to traffic flow and traffic jams.
We want to develop a climate neutral campus with innovative ideas and bold solutions and thereby, advance climate protection and reduce CO2 production. What does it look like in your city? Develop a concept that enables the TUHH to have a climate neutral campus in the future.
This challenge deals with the cooperation of local companies and local governments as well as regional administrators to improve the living and working conditions of citizens and employees.
According to Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG), scope 3 emission includes all the indirect activities that occurs in company’s supply chain (logistic, business travels, purchased goods and services etc.). The scope 3 emission are also usually larger than the scope 1 (direct) and scope 2 (purchased energy) emission for many companies that are in the international trade businesses. At the moment, there are no clear guidelines for SMEs on how to determine and calculate their scope 3 emission.
Contamination of water by bacteria and viruses is a current societal problem in many parts of the world, especially because the removal of such is difficulted due to their reduced size, often smaller than 5 micrometers. This is particularly critical for population living in highly dense populated areas with a single water source, since contamination could be further linked to a rapid spread of the pathogen among the community with potential generation of a new epidemic or pandemic.
ECIU University wants to contribute to making our cities sustainable and therefore, seeks for learners who take responsibility and shape a sustainable future with new mindsets, behaviours, ways of learning, thinking and working in support of new solutions, technologies and innovations. The big idea is to develop a climate neutral campus with innovative ideas and bold solutions and thereby, advance climate protection and reduce CO2 production.
Without plastics our world of today would be unthinkable. There are hardly any consumer products that work without. Yet – as it is made of mineral oil - plastics is a good far too valuable to waste and can do serious damage, when it doesn’t get recycled properly. Nevertheless, our fullest innovation potential needs to be unfolded until plastics usage has fully transformed into circular value chains.
