Students cultivate tomatoes, take care of the greenhouse, work on water infrastructures, biodiversity, plant mushrooms, map and engage with “the third landscape” and organize Agora discussions at the FUB Floating University Berlin. The FUB is an offshore campus and laboratory where interested people research and learn together in free formats. It opens the water retention basin of Columbiadamm, next to Templehof airport in Berlin, as a space for exploration, improvisation, and experimentation. We work together with teams from other universities, create workshops, learn and collaborate and engage with the site.
