Professional Day Sustainability

June 06, 2019

Professional Day at KLU

Join the KLU Professional Day and dive into the world of coffee farmers in Eastern Africa and develop sustainable solutions for their economic challenges! KLU in cooperation with the Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung will introduce you to a case study in the smallholder coffee supply chain in Uganda. Put yourselves in the shoes of a group of ambitious graduates from Makere Universiy in Kampala. Can you come up with innovative ideas in the supply chain that help Florence and Desu and their children, the coffee farmer family, to live a better live and send their daughter to secondary school?

We invite High school students from all over Germany to take part in this one-day event that is all about innovative ideas and creativity. If you are 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. 

At KLU we teach global problem-solvers of tomorrow!

Partner

The non-profit foundation Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung (HRNS) implements hands-on projects to improve working and living conditions of small-scale coffee farming families through enhancing their economic and social development. At the same time, sustainable practices and responsible use of natural resources are promoted together with strategies to adapt to climate change. Gender equality and perspectives of youths receive special attention in the HRNS approach. HRNS was established by Michael R. Neumann and his family as an independent organization in 2005.

Agenda

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.
