Looking for a New Year resolution? Support the climate protection statement of S4F!


Scientists4Future invites you to sign the “Statement of scientists and scholars concerning the protests for more climate protection”. . .

Scientists for Future (S4F) is an environmental initiative, founded and run by a group of scholars from across the German-speaking countries. S4F is cross-disciplinary in character and international in its reach, with regional and local chapters in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.

S4F activities include but are not limited to spreading awareness of the scientific consensus on climate change, CO2- and other greenhouse emissions; supporting the Fridays for Future movement; introducing environmental concerns in the higher education curricula; producing resources for teaching and learning; and fostering dialogue with policy makers and the civil society.

The group’s “Statement of scientists and scholars concerning the protests for more climate protection,” has been signed by nearly 27,000 researchers from a wide range of academic fields.

Please note: if you are a scholar based in Austria and had signed the petition back in 2019, we kindly ask you to sign again (due to the new data protection regulations). Likewise, if you have not signed the petition but would like to do so, please click here [redirects to a website in German].

Several scholars at WU are actively engaged in S4F, and some of our faculty has been teaching in the cross-disciplinary S4F Lectures4Future series.
