Unesco Lehrstuhl an der FH

Unsere Mission

Exzellente Forschung und inspirierende Lernerfahrungen für Naturschutz im 21. Jahrhundert um „Persönlichkeiten, Institutionen und Gesellschaften im Management von Schutzgebieten zu unterstützen“. Dies ist der Auftrag des UNESCO Lehrstuhls für Nachhaltiges Management von Schutzgebieten an der FH Kärnten.

Der UNESCO Lehrstuhl wurde 2020 eingerichtet. Er hat sich zu einem international sichtbaren Zentrum für Exzellenz, Innovation und neue Technologien im Naturschutz entwickelt. Die Aktivitäten des Lehrstuhls basieren auf einem interdisziplinären, ganzheitlichen und integrierten Verständnis von Schutzgebieten, wie es von UNESCO-Biosphärenreservaten, UNESCO-Welterbestätten und UNESCO-Geoparks vertreten und vorgelebt wird. So werden Biodiversität, Klimaschutz und eine nachhaltige Entwicklung (SDGs) durch Forschung und Weiterbildung unterstützt.

 

Unesco Lehrstuhl

Der UNESCO Lehrstuhl wird von FH-Professor Michael Jungmeier geleitet. Er ist Professor für Naturschutz und Nachhaltigkeit. Er verfügt über mehr als 30 Jahre internationale Berufserfahrung im Naturschutz, insbesondere in der Planung und im Management von Schutzgebieten, wie Naturparken, Nationalparken oder Natura 2000 Gebieten.

Die UNESCO ist die Organisation der Vereinten Nationen für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Kultur. Sie hat 1992 das Programm der UNESCO-Lehrstühle ins Leben gerufen. Die Fachhochschule Kärnten ist daher ein aktives Mitglied des globalen UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Programms. Dieses umfasst derzeit 850 Institutionen in 117 Ländern. Wir sind stolz auf diese Partnerschaften.

Are you ready to pave the way for a greener future? At Green Transition Engineering, we believe that achieving the goals of the green transformation requires efficient and well-informed decision-making. That‘s why we emphasize the power of data in our approach. Data holds the key to understanding the current state of affairs and identifying effective sustainability measures.

With expertise in data engineering and understanding of global connections across ecological, economic, and social realms, our graduates are uniquely positioned to shape the future of sustainable development.

The bachelor degree program "Green Transition Engineering" provides a broad and application-oriented basic education in the various transition disciplines (society, economy, ecology), the basic competences in the natural sciences and their technical possibilities, digitalisation and data engineering with relevant sensor, environmental and climate data, as well as fields of application. Accordingly, the curriculum is divided into nine focus areas in which specific competences are acquired and the Bachelor Thesis for completing the studies.
