"Wir sind Chemnitz ("We are Chemnitz")
Chemnitz University of Technology sets an example for diversity and cosmopolitanism in the course of the city’s application for the Capital of Culture.
The decision as to who will be awarded the title of European Capital of Culture 2025, for which the city of Chemnitz is currently campaigning, is imminent. Chemnitz University of Technology supports this application emphatically and in many ways. This also includes once again sending a clear signal for diversity and cosmopolitanism, as Chemnitz University of Technology has already clearly positioned itself on numerous occasions in the past.
A video clip, which was produced as part of the #wirsindchemnitz campaign, is representative of this. In the video, national and international students and employees from Chemnitz have their say and show the diversity and cosmopolitanism of the location. In addition, statements by researchers and students are available in a separate playlist on the university’s YouTube channel.
