The 20th Austrian Climate Day, organized by the CCCA (Climate Change Center Austria), offers a diverse program with lectures, workshops and networking sessions to engage scientists, stakeholders and decision makers in the field of climate change and adaptation. One of the event´s key feature is the interconnection between multiple fields of science, e.g. ecology, climate research, bio- and geo-sciences, economics and social sciences. One key aim is to stimulate dialogue between scientists and non-scientists. Abstract submission deadline: 6 November 2018! General registration opens 2019.

Clean up your city! Ever heard about “plogging”? This is the new kind of sports that helps your environment. Plogging combines Jogging with Picking up litter.
Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLg3BmGS0ws&feature=youtu.be
and find plogging teams in your area: https://www.greenheroes.at/
by the way: why not count the pieces of plastics, paper, cans and other litter? This does not only give your efforts a number, but it also provides valuable data for littering studies. Compare them with next year´s data and see if littering prevention has improved. Compare them with other countries´data and see how much better (or worse) the situation is there.
Two-day-event reflecting the issue of sustainability. It includes a workshop and the Green Mobility Desgin Thinking Challenge.

from BOKU (University of Natural Resources, Vienna, Austria) newsletter:
The Prague Summer School on Development, Sustainability and Globalization aims to enrich the discussion on the new tasks for the global development. The program is conceptualized within a broad framework, as the study of development challenges cannot discern, for instance, from the debate on food production and consumption in both developed and developing countries, environmental impact of development or existing institutional arrangements based on political negotiations and multilateral cooperation. The program will provide students with deeper understanding of development challenges by addressing the set of political, economic, technological and environmental aspects related to development cooperation.
APPLICATION DEADLINE 31 March
The organizer, a non-profit organization, encourages students to explore funding opportunities available through their home universities, non-governmental organizations and government sources; or here: www.scholarshipportal.com.
