Universities as Change Makers: Sustainability Initiatives Around the Globe

25.03.2021 | 16:00 - 18:00

Publication Release and Online Discussion

Internationally oriented universities are constantly becoming more active in building strong global sustainability alliances. Freie Universität Berlin has been an active advocate of sustainable development for many years. The publication ‘Universities as Change Makers: Sustainability Initiatives from Across the Globe’ is a product of a collaboration between the University Alliance for Sustainability (UAS) and the Postgraduate Program on Sustainable Development and Social Inequalities in the Andean Region (trAndeS). Both programs are joint initiatives coordinated by Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin) and its international partner universities.

‘Universities as Change Makers’ was released in English mid-2020 and the Spanish translation just followed this month. The publication features 12 sustainability initiatives implemented at universities around the globe. The stories from Canada, Chile, Colombia, China, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Peru, and Russia prove that universities can play a significant role as drivers of change on campus and beyond. It is therefore an important mission for sustainability actors to discuss both the success factors and the challenges of these projects. Due to the enormous practical know how, these initiatives have the potential to become model projects for other institutions around the globe.

The discussion aims at sharing the learnings from the initiatives and networking between different sustainability actors from the academic sector and beyond.

Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an: Mitarbeiter/innen der Freien Universität Berlin Studierende Forschende Externe
