The SURE International Center Urban Ecology was founded in 2015 at the 2nd SURE World Conference in Shanghai, China. At the 3rd SURE World Conference in Poznań, Poland, the Center was confirmed in its tasks.
The aim here is to bring together and coordinate the international activities of SURE in teaching on urban ecology. For this purpose, special teaching concepts and teaching profiles, including online teaching courses, are being developed. In addition, the SURE International Center Urban Ecology should also promote practical implementation of urban ecological knowledge in urban development and initiate research and development projects.
The following were appointed as heads of the center:
– Prof. Dr. Jürgen Breuste, Salzburg, Austria,
– Dr. Henrys Garay Sarastri, Bogotá, Colombia, and
– Prof. Dr. Martin Sauerwein, Hildesheim, Germany.
The center is connected to the University of Hildesheim:
