Let’s Make Sustainability Great Again!
Climate change, resource scarcity and ecological destruction – it is undeniable that we are facing more and more substantial challenges. While 2017 broke yet another record for hottest year on file, it was also a devastating year of climate denial with President Trump withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement.
Today’s problems cannot be tackled with yesterday’s solutions and most importantly; we cannot expect others to do it for us. What we need is a new generation of autonomous visionaries, who comprehend the necessity of developing sustainable innovations – a new generation of decision-makers, revolutionizing the framework of politics, economy and society.
Determined to make a difference, we founded Infinity Mannheim in 2015 as a student initiative for social entrepreneurship. We organize inspirational talks by contemporary pioneers to raise awareness for both current challenges and opportunities in the field of sustainability. Hands-on workshops with experts enable us to expand our knowledge and solution expertise. Finally, our own entrepreneurial projects foster sustainable innovations with an enduring impact locally. This three-pillar concept of talks, workshops and social entrepreneurship builds the foundation for working consistently on our generation’s future viability.
As the world is moving forward, so are we. With more than 300 members only in Mannheim since 2015, we cannot dismiss any longer the potential and necessity for more sustainable innovations nationwide. With the founding of Infinity Deutschland as an umbrella association last August, we strive to create a network to empower young thinkers at universities all over Germany. We are always looking for like-minded people to expand our network – no matter as co-founder of a regional group, adviser, financial supporter or university partner. Together we can accomplish our vision throughout Germany to create a long-lasting impact.
We’re heading to Infinity – Join the movement!

SensAbility @ WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar – April 6th-7th
As Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus said: “Social Business is not about me, it’s all about you". Instead of solely maximizing profits, the goal of social entrepreneurship is to maximize the social benefit. In our workshop, participants will get an overview of successful sustainable business models and afterwards have the opportunity to work on their own entrepreneurial projects.
