Lecture Series „Sustainability in China“

The interdisciplinary lecture series deals with relevant aspects of sustainable development and sustainability management in China; different lecturers from China and Germany will share their academic research and practical experience with students.


Sustainable development is a global goal of the 21st century, expressed through the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDGs). In September 2015, after China signed the Sustainable Development Goals, detailed Chinese national plans have transformed each target of the SDGs into “Action plans” for China. As the second largest economy in the world, the People's Republic of China has a vital role to play in the process of achieving the final goal of sustainable development. The interdisciplinary lecture series deals with relevant aspects of sustainable development and sustainability management in China; different lecturers from China and Germany will share their academic research and practical experience with students. This course will provide multidisciplinary insights from marketing, business, engineering, entrepreneurship, environmental science and culture, etc.

The course takes place as a weekly lecture series in English as a cooperation with the Competence Centre Sustainability in China (CCSC) and the AUDI Confucius Institute (Director: Prof. Dr Peter Augsdörfer). From a transdisciplinary perspective, Chinese, German and international speakers from academic and business practice will discuss various aspects of economic, ecological and social development in China. This year, students from KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt and THI will join the lecture series together to address various topics, such as sustainability marketing, cultural role on business strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and sustainable land management. For more information on the topics of the lecture series, please refer to the list below.
