friedrich – FAU´s research magazine
Green is not enough
It is one of the most important topics of our times: sustainability. Several researchers at FAU concentrate on exploring how the global community can shape a world where we can all live well, now and in the future. It is abundantly clear that sustainability means so much more than just protecting our environment. Sustainability affects so many areas of our lives – from healthcare and the economy to living together in society.
This issue of friedrich deals with the topic of sustainability from a range of different perspectives. Is it possible to mobilise the international community to make a joint effort to tackle the challenges of our times? And how fair and sustainable is healthcare across the globe? Another vital aspect for a sustainable lifestyle is a healthy environment, a healthy climate. Our magazine takes a look at how scientists are using complex computer models to research the workings of our climate and how it is likely to change in the future. Our western lifestyle is strongly influenced by the economy. The question arises as to whether it is time for a new economic order. As you can see, ecological concerns are only part of the complex concept of ‘sustainability’.
I hope you enjoy reading,

Research magazine friedrich
This edition of friedrich takes a closer look at different pathways in a wide range of different contexts. For example, we looked at why and how people travel. To be on the move can also be taken more literally. Something we tend to neglect in today’s digital society. How can we buck this trend? And how can we help those whose movement is restricted as a result of illness? Life is rarely a straightforward journey from A to B. Adaptability is key. Research expeditions are a good example of this in practice. We looked into how Humboldt and other explorers coped with the challenges facing them. And sometimes even if we are expected to follow a certain way of doing things, for example at work, we deliberately choose to ignore it. What inspires us to find a ‘workaround.
