Why SURE?

Every day we are making decisions, whether in private affairs, as citizens, as decision makers... . Only in exceptional cases however do we have reliable information about the consequences of our decision. How do we decide, then?

The societal decisions with respect to climate change are a good example for this dilemma. The global climate and therefore the living conditions of the world's population depend critically on our behaviour and on the political decisions, which are being made today.

Which Topics are Considered?

Who can use SURE?

SURE? was specifically designed for teaching in schools and universities. Animated sequences elucidate difficult concepts, exercises help to further deal with the topics. Discussing the exercises and the subject should then take place in class.
