Professional Day Sustainability

May 25, 2018

Professional Day at KLU

Together with the foundation Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung, the Kühne Logistics University is organizing this year's Professional Day on the topic of sustainability. High school students from all over Hamburg get together for an entire day and dive into the world of coffee farmers in Uganda. Confronted with the farmer's challenges, the students will have the chance to develop solutions with regards to sustainability.

Our Professional Day is free of cost for participating students, including our coffee breaks, lunch and final get-together. After a kick-off phase with introductory lectures, participants will split up into small groups and work on their cases in separate breakout rooms. At the end of the day each group will be asked to present their solutions to the plenum. We will close the day with a certificate ceremony and a final get-together.

If you are a high school student in your final two years before graduation and you are interested in socially relevant topics, entrepreneurial ideas and like to discuss and exchange those with other students, join us and register for our Professional Day, as long as spots are still available.
