Concrete solutions for a clean future
Today we face a lot of challenges and clean future is definitely one of them. At universities we need to discuss and support current topics for sustainable world for today and for the future, where the role of education in this process is crucial and needs also to be highlighted.
The University of Žilina has been operating in the network of Slovak universities for nearly 60 years. At its seven faculties it offers technically and technologically oriented study programmes as well as economic and humanities education. It has successfully spread the cooperation with partners in the world and became one of the leading educational institutions in Slovakia.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
