RWTHextern Citizens' Forum successfully builds a bridge between the university and citizens in the region with its comprehensive semester program. The various event series are attractive for a broad audience: the young and old, citizens who seek more education, students, music lovers, and theater and literature fans. Everyone is welcome to attend RWTHextern Citizens' Forum events.
The series "culture lab" builds the framework for diverse cultural events like exhibits, presentations, theater performances, and concerts by renowned artists (e.g. WDR Bigband). Like the title of the series promises, even culture experiments have their place. The project/concert "Sounds of Science" marks the beginning. The experimental character of the projects will continually increase.
The famous RWTH Aachen alumnus is returning to the university - In his event series Privatissimo, Wenderlin Haverkamp improvises to critique the strange sciences. He is a visitor people always love to see.
Uni at City Hall
The event series Uni at City Hall, hosted by the city and university, has been reworked and is open to all citizens of Aachen: As part of a relaunch, current topics and controversial issues are discussed by well-known experts in science and society. This takes place in the form of a panel discussion. The event is moderated by Aachen WDR journalist, Bettina Staubitz. The increased opportunity for discussion with the public is a new element: ask questions, take a stance, debate like never before! Through the change in format, the event series touches on citizens' interests leading to more discussion, participation, and individual activity in political and established structures. As a result the series has its finger on the pulse of the times.
At the Focus
In the series At the Focus, a certain topic with current relevance is discussed, such as US elections, Robert Koch, or human rights. The series, which regularly takes place, is characterised by its broad spectrum of topics.
