Orientation Week Winter Semester 2022/23

Are you new to Freiburg and looking to meet cool people, maybe even people engaged in politics, climate and sustainability?
Or were you active in the climate movement at home and want to continue with activism and need a place/connection to do this?
Or maybe you just have too much time on your hands and want to try something new?

We, the Students for Future Freiburg, welcome you and invite you to come to some some fun events – from dancing in the street, to a clothes swap or our weekly meeting (Wednesday, 20h, Belfortstraße 24) – each is a chance to meet new people.
Come by and join us! We are so excited to get to know you 🙂

(And as a bonus, we are students from all different faculties – so we are also the answers to some of the questions that you may have in the first few weeks of Uni)

Thursday, October 6th, Workshop: Civil Disobedience

This Thursday, for an early start to orientation week, the workshop „Civil Disobedience in Climate Activism“ will take place, starting at 11:15 am, then again at 2:30 pm. The workshop will be about 1.5 hours long and in German.

Monday, October 10th: 100 days of Climate Camp in Freiburg

Orientation week starts on a special day: October 10th is the hundredth day of the climate camp on the city hall square in the inner city of Freiburg. Join us for fun festivities (more details to come soon!)

Tuesday, October 11th: Rave The Rempart (12:30 – 6 pm)

Contrary to its original announcement, the city administration has lifted the one-way street regulation in Rempartstraße, the street in front of the Mensa in the city centre.
This cannot stay!
That’s why we are once again dancing, together with Greenpeace, on Rempartstraße – we want to show that streets are there for everyone – and much nicer without cars.
In the long run, we want Rempartstraße to become completely car-free. You can further support our demands with https://www.change.org/p/rempartstra%C3%9Fe-autofrei.

Saturday, October 15th: Exchange Market on the Rempartstraße (11 am – 3 pm)

The Rempartstraße is the centre of student life in Freiburg. Between the university library, KG I, II and III and the Rempartmensa, several thousand students use the street every day.

Despite all this the city has decided to reverse the one-way street decision, opening traffic up in both directions. This despite the fact that it is clear that more cars on the streets equal more accidents.

This is why, we, Students for Future Freiburg, together with Greenpeace Freiburg, want to show what the space could be used for if there were fewer or no cars on the street. In addition to regular raves, we are organising a swap party on 15.10. from 11 am to 3 pm. You can swap all kinds of clothes, plants, books and much more. Bring what you don’t need any more, so that someone else can enjoy it!

Come by! We look forward to seeing you!

To note: Open Plenary (Meeting) at the Seepark (October 26th, 6 pm)
