In the course of the changing society in a complex globalized world, the tasks of and the demands on universities and universities are also changing. They are increasingly perceiving other socially relevant functions beyond classical research and teaching, which are described by the term "Third Mission": So the question of how science and society can benefit from each other.



The cooperation therefore focuses on two objectives:

  • Students learn the working methods of mediation (journalistic writing) and the collection of information (qualitative working methods of the social sciences).
  • The students prepare contributions (reports, interviews, columns, etc.) for the online portal Lifeguide Augsburg. Thematically, the project focuses on the topic of sustainability
