News from May 17, 2018
Sustainability is a future-oriented task that can only succeed if consistently embedded throughout the university. At a university with 36,500 students and almost 5,200 employees, 150 study programs, 16 academic departments and central institutes, as well as a campus with 220 buildings, every discipline and administration area is able to contribute.
Our 17-year history of working in sustainability has revealed that it is about more than just successful management. Only by prioritizing participation and collaboration can such a challenge be successfully addressed at a university. Systematically linking management, networking, and participation is the core mission of the Unit for Sustainability and Energy Management.
The first Sustainability Report of Freie Universität Berlin details the focus of our activities and shows the progressive evolution of our commitment to sustainable campus management over the past 17 years. We introduce milestones, measures, the diverse stakeholders on campus, our outreach activities beyond campus and our plans for the future.
