AK Aufklärung Organspende Erlangen [AKO]

Even if every person in Germany is free to decide whether he/she wants to donate organs after brain death or not, people often remain poorly informed, with an opinion shaped by prejudice or superficial knowledge. Aiming to explain organ donation in a professional, unbiased and neutral manner without preferring any specific opinion about the topic, in 2014 the initiative „Aufklärung Organspende“ was founded and has since then successfully been established in many local groups across several universities, among them FAU.
Organ donation is an important issue since the required number of organs in Germany cannot be covered, leaving thousands of patients on waiting lists for years. So we, mainly settled at the faculty of medicine, but open for participants from the whole university, try to spread facts about the topic in the main population. By visiting schools, teaching in an elective course for medical students, holding and organizing lectures and many other activities we try to reach people and to empower them to make an informed decision pro or contra organ donation.
In our meetings during semester besides learning and talking about organ donation and planning upcoming events we have fun together and a good time as a group. If you want to participate, it is without importance if you have medical background or not – only your interest in the topic counts! 60 Mitglieder

Our sessions are open to all, with no prior knowledge or preparation needed.

sneep Nürnberg [sneep]

sneep stands for “student network for ethics in economics and practice”. Our association has set itself the goal of stimulating critical discourse on ethical and sustainable management in theory and practice. As a multidisciplinary network of students, trainees, doctoral candidates and young professionals, we want to bring sustainability and ethics more into business and science.
We want to encourage people to think outside the box of classic economics and thus show opportunities for business in the 21st century. @sneepNuernberg @sneepnuernberg 20 Mitglieder

Every year we also organize the company fair “CONTACT” together with ETG – Kurzschluss.
Nevertheless, we do not miss the fun part and we organize both internal team events, such as laser tag games or canoe trips, as well as external events, such as the Ersti-Camp or, together with the ETG, the Feuerzangenbowle.
Everybody can be part of our university group! By puting your own ideas to practice, you can not only play an active role in shaping the daily life at the university, but also build up an interdisciplinary network. @young_engineers_erlangen 25 Mitglieder
