The students of Phorms Hamburg participated in the "Climate Week Education Programme" in September 2021. In addition, students from different classes regularly take part in workshops. We are already looking forward to the 14th Hamburg Climate Week. The Climate Week is an independent initiative from the middle of society and forms a platform with many actors from science, business and society to engage in relevant environmental and climate protection issues. The aim of the Hamburg Climate Week is to move from extensive knowledge about global climate change and its threats to concrete action - by each individual and in the city as a whole. Hamburg Climate Week networks and creates a platform that connects. Spread across the city, there are events of various kinds on the topic of climate, environmental protection and social issues at numerous locations. Patron 2021: Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen ► klimawoche.de (in German)

The goal is to strengthen the community and cohesion in our city. Founded in 1999 by Hamburg citizens as a politically and economically independent community foundation for their city, the BürgerStiftung Hamburg lives from the idea of civic engagement and the active participation of as many citizens as possible. Together with the BürgerStiftung, the students of the Phorms Campus Hamburg were able to carry out a "Vertical Garden Project". The "Vertical Garden Project" was funded by the Youth Environment Council of the BürgerStiftung Hamburg. The aim is to involve young people and young adults more in the foundation's work in order to increase the diversity of volunteers. Young commitment should not be promoted exclusively financially. The foundation should be a place of engagement for young volunteers. The Youth Environment Council offers young people a body in which they can participate as creators, decision-makers and experts in their own right. ► buergerstiftung-hamburg.de (in German)
