The UNI:Lokal is a central and open venue and exhibition space in Kassel's city center.

With this offer in Kassel's pedestrian zone, the University of Kassel aims to strengthen its connection to the city's society. With a varied program of exhibitions and events, citizens are invited to enter into a dialogue about current research topics and to discuss aspects. At UNI:Lokal, prospective students can also find out about the wide range of courses on offer at any time. With the SDG+ Lab, the regional sustainability laboratory of UniKasselTranfer has moved into the rooms as the main player.

New exhibition of the SDG+Lab

"Everything different? Paths to Transformation" in the theme year "Transformations in Energy + Environment"

July 9 to October 19, 2024 at UNI:Lokal

The world around us is changing - heavy rainfall and hot summers in northern Hesse show the locally noticeable effects of increasingly scarce natural resources. Saving electricity, cycling more and preparing for storms - will everything be different in the future? From July 9 to October 19, the SDG+ Lab's new exhibition "Everything different? Paths to transformation" shows how people and institutions from Kassel are actively shaping change for a shared future.

Can we have a say in the direction we take? Where do we even want to go? Why should we - and others - get involved? And how can a transformation succeed? As part of the theme year "Transformations in Energy + Environment", the exhibition focuses on the work within the project, but also shows what committed people from science and society in the region are already contributing to change for a sustainable region. Visitors are actively involved in shaping, developing their vision of a North Hesse of the future and moving the lever of transformation.

Opening of the exhibition on July 9 at 7 p.m.
