In line with the continued commitment of the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg in contributing to
sustainable development, we would like to turn your attention to the following initiative and kindly ask for feedback.
The idea for Scientists for Future bike tour originated during discussions among members of the PhD
council. It is a response to pressing global problems demonstrating our support for the international movement ‘Scientists4Future’ (S4F).
S4F stands with the global climate movement by providing facts and materials based on reliable and accepted scientific data to activists, politicians, decision-makers, educators, and the general public. It represents an independent and voluntary collective of scientists, researchers, and academics from all kinds of disciplines, united by a deep concern for our shared future (https://scientists4future.org/)
By attending ‘seminars on wheels’ to visit selected sustainability-oriented sights (e.g., NGOs, private
companies, public institutions, community projects), the pilot initiative aims to raise young researchers’
awareness and knowledge about major problems and innovative ideas taking place in Lower Saxony.
Moreover, it is an ideal possibility for bike riding in the wonderful surrounding nature of the region and
making new acquaintances.
The S4F initiative is planned for Summer 2023 and preparation has already begun. The following survey will take you around 5 minutes, aiming to gain insights into your preferences on the bike tour and leisure, in general.
