Um Welt Denken
International Doctorate Program "Rethinking Environment"
In German, Um(Welt)Denken is a wordplay combining the term “environment” (Umwelt) with the verb “rethinking” (umdenken). The project’s name comes from the need to rethink human relationships with the world we, as a species, inhabit. A partnership between Augsburg University and the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, the international doctorate program (Internationales Doktorand:innenkolleg – IDK) Rethinking Environment brings together young scholars and experienced experts from various fields to explore new ways of approaching the ecological transformation of society.
