In April 2018, the university’s second Sustainability Week focused on the topic of mobility. During the third Basel Sustainability Forum in June, well-known researchers discussed the topic of climate change together with people working in the areas of policy, economics and from NGOs. In addition, significant publications from SCCER CREST and the environmental sciences caught the attention of the media and political sphere.
