In Germany for climate protection

The third batch of International Climate Protection Fellowship holders are pursuing research in Germany.

Sustainable building, personal carbon footprint and environmental taxation – those are the topics that are being addressed by the third batch of students to have won Alexander von Humboldt Foundation International Climate Protection Fellowships. One of the 20-odd fellows is Ngo Thi To Nhien who previously worked at the Ministry of Science and Technology in Hanoi and is now engaged in research at the University of Hamburg on im­proving the energy efficiency of buildings. Sonny Syahril from Jakarta is doing work at the University of Potsdam on funding models for use in the fight against climate change. And Erica Udas (photo) of the WWF Nepal has come to Greifswald to 
investigate new ways of making education climate-neutral as part of the Carbon 
Neutral University project.
