The Seminar in Sustainability is part of a two-week study abroad trip to Germany. During the first week, student experience German culture and history with visits to the Bundestag, the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse, the Brandenburg Gate, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, and many other historical sites. In 2018, we will add a visit to Viessmann Digital, the Berlin-based offices of the latest Viessmann strategic initiative. During the second week, spent at the Viessmann headquarters in Allendorf, Germany, UW Oshkosh students learn about the Viessmann group’s history and sustainability initiatives through tours and lectures and participate in a three-day Design Thinking Workshop. The Design Thinking Workshop brings together UW Oshkosh students from COLS and COB and German students studying business and engineering in teams, with trained facilitators, to design a new product or service for Viessmann than enables sustainable living using Viessmann’s energy systems and the new power of digitalization. This course can be made to count as an upper-level ES course in Environment, Policy & Values. See the attachment for details.
