University for all
In the "Lectures in special places" series of events, lecturers from the various faculties hold one-off lectures at unusual places away from the university campus yet befitting the topic.
"Anyone who keeps on learning is young, whether at twenty or eighty." (Henry Ford)
Multiple changes to our professional positions over the course of our working lives is becoming increasingly natural. At the same time, our available knowledge becomes increasingly greater and renewed. A degree can no longer offer graduates a qualification to last an entire professional life. For this reason, the universisty offers multiple chances for part-time further education alongside work.
In the form of this offer, the university reaches out to all interested, older adults wishing to face the challenge of life-long learning and to participate in the academic and cultural life at the university.
Everyone is welcome to participate, irrespective of their level of education.
The university's red wandering bench takes up position in special places in the city of Neubrandenburg where it stays for quite a while – before moving off to the next spot. Communal activities are held on the bench during this time.
A lively artistic and cultural scene is traditional around Neubrandenburg. It intensively deals with the region as its place of work and residence, and exerts its influence by means of film festivals, exhibitions, readings and concerts. Art in particular can apprehend the social, economic and ecological topics of the peripheral regions and initiate a critical discourse. In cooperation with regional artists, the university develops event formats and art events pertaining to the hot topics.
