Malte Stuecker participated in various panels and discussion sessions during the forum, for instance on topics “Climate Change” and “Utilization of Space and Ocean”. These sessions included discussions with leaders in academia, politics, and industry. “Another interesting discussion at the forum was on how we can improve the education system, moving away from learning facts to encourage critical thinking.” Malte Stuecker said.
