Transformative education for a sustainable world
The impact of CHG’s research and educational innovations is designed to radiate far beyond the university. Together with its now more than 130 students, 60 alumni (as of January 2021), as well as practice, research and funding partners, the CHG is becoming the center of a far-reaching network of change. In this way, it succeeds in pushing its established best practices into other universities and other educational institutions. To this end, the university works with transformers such as the “Fridays for Future” movement and innovative companies and foundations. This network gives rise to new possibilities to engage such as summer schools, digital lecture series and practical camps. With teaching materials and training courses, the university supports reform-minded teachers at other universities and convinces influential publishers. Finally, it increases the pressure on those who do not want to change of their own accord with education policy campaigns.
All of this is only possible because donors recognize ist impact and potential and support the university in its endeavors. Supported by a non-profit limited liability company (gGmbH), the university does not receive any basic state funding, but lives from donations and tuition fees.
