What we do

Sustainability is so multifaceted that there is not the one correct way of getting closer to the goal. To achieve sustainability, we have to work together on diverse actions and to empower each other in order to be successful. Thus, we support diverse student projects which contribute in their own manner to our path. This allows us to exploit the endless possibilities that exist and are being developed in the heads of the students.

We can provide support in several aspects. We possess a budget to help out financially. Additionally, we can get students in contact with the responsible people to implement the projects. Furthermore, if you need additional people for planning and implementing your project, we can advertise it on our diverse channels and mobilize motivated students to join you.

Do you have an idea?

The only thing that is still missing is YOUR idea? Does it already exist in your head? Then contact us! In case you would like to implement a project, but you do not yet have an idea, why not getting inspiration from our current projects? Or ask us whether someone else is launching a project and could use your help.

Also, if your project is already ongoing but you would like us to advertise it to catch the awareness of more students/ people, do not hesitate to contact us.

The question of food security underlies many of the world’s problems today. In wealthier nations, we are being called upon to trust a highly opaque supply chain and our choices are limited to those things that major supermarket chains are willing to stock. A huge transport and storage apparatus adds to the cost and CO2 emissions and detracts from the nutritional value of the produce [...]
