In his farewell lecture, Werner Sobek once again calls for the grid expansion with green energy to finally be massively pushed forward: “There is no other way.” The sustainability pioneer in construction ends his last lecture with the guiding principle that also applies to the company he founded: “We have to build emission-free for more people with love and dedication.”
On 25 May 2023, after almost three decades of teaching at the University of Stuttgart, Werner Sobek gave his farewell lecture to an audience of more than 900. After around 90 minutes, Werner Sobek said goodbye to the stage for the last time as a lecturer to a standing ovation. For all those who were unable to attend, we have documented the event and are now showing various excerpts from Werner Sobek’s speech. In the last film, Werner Sobek mentions the overdue measures against climate change and the task of the building industry.
