Every Thursday at 12-13 people meet very informally at the Student Union Building to share ideas and to start new initiatives. Many ideas are shared in the Facebook Group and then followed up on a Thursday meeting. There are a number of projects in support of refugees taking place at the university. On this page we will try to collect them all and keep up to speed with the discussions in the Group:
- Open seminar with focus on the refugee crisis – please search the blog for the category “seminar” for information on given seminars.
