Welcome to KlimaPlanReal

Our project pursues the goal to support universities in Saxony-Anhalt on their way to climate neutrality. In more detail, we explore sustainable transformation paths to climate neutrality with planning cells and real-world laboratories.

Focusing on the goal of climate neutrality in universities, the project will investigate both transformational and transformative processes. In a first phase, cross-status group climate university councils will be conducted, based on the planning cell method. Supported by experts (and expert advisory boards), who will provide topic-specific input, these councils will develop recommendations for action to achieve climate neutrality.

The first recommendations will be implemented in pilot projects in the next two project phases, accompanied by an (interdisciplinary and cross-administrative) transformation team. This will take place in transfer laboratories, based on the real-world lab approach.

This three-phase process will be carried out at five universities in Saxony-Anhalt. The entire process will be evaluated across the universities in order to be able to present obstacles & potentials for the transformation and transformative process. At the end of the project, blueprints for other universities will be derived from the findings and made available in a digital best practice report.

A total of 5 universities are embarking on the journey together:




More about the project.

In January, our online meeting with the Scientific Advisory Board of our project will take place. This advisory board is supporting the KlimaPlanReal team for the whole duration of the project.

We cordially invite you to our online event about the KlimaPlanReal project. We will present the project and give the opportunity to exchange ideas with the project staff as well as ask questions. In addition, we will also talk about the current results and progress and explain the next steps in the development of the project. The event will take place on Jan. 24, 2023 at 9 a.m. and dial-in details for Zoom can be obtained upon request by emailing klimaplanreal@ovgu.de.

At the beginning of November 2022, our first virtual and cross-university meeting took place in the project team. We got to know each other and agreed on initial schedules. We are already looking forward to the future cooperation in this project as well as exchanges and the goal of climate-neutral universities in Saxony-Anhalt.
