The workshop will continue the long-time work on the issue "Socio-Ecological Responsibility in Science and Engineering Education".

The members of the network exchange teaching practices through the integration of sustainability, peace, democracy and ethics principles into the training courses.

It provides a platform for the cooperation within the education society, scientists and engineers.

We get time to establish the professional society and committee to insert the progressive social and ecological sustainable principles into the education system, courses and training plans.

The last network meeting was led in Berlin, 2016. The schedule of that meeting could be found here:,


- To exchange teaching experiences and new ideas (units, plans, methods, programmes) in Socio-Ecological Responsibility education;

- To present the existing /proposed short teaching-units underpinned by theoretical reflections;

- To discuss the multi-level teaching standards' coordination in University, science and long-life education through the social and ecological benefits;

- To create a Road-Map for the professional collaboration;

- To establish The Society of Socio-Ecological Responsibility in Science and Engineering Education (SERSEE).

The organizers also will spread the outcomes of the workshop further by publishing written proceedings with peer-reviewed contributions.
