24 May 2023 12:00-13:30: Campus tour " Accessibility" (starting point: in front of the canteen)

How accessible is our campus? We want to approach this question together with you on 24th of May as part of the Diversity Day 2023 action week with a campus tour. We will start at 12.00 at the canteen and then visit various places on campus that are particularly interesting with regard to the topic of accessibility and where ambivalences also become clear. In addition to input from the responsible Leuphana University staff, you can also ask questions and make suggestions, criticisms and give feedback.

You can register at genderdiversity@leuphana.de. We look forward to a lively exchange!
