University of Bayreuth, Press Release No. 090/2023 of 27 June 2023

A whole week for sustainability

Over the course of eight days, all facets of sustainability will be highlighted and student engagement on the campus of the University of Bayreuth will be shown. The Sustainability Week will take place from 03. to 10. July 23. A diverse programme will be offered for this purpose.

Sustainability plays a special role at the University of Bayreuth: it was one of the first universities in Bavaria to develop a comprehensive sustainability strategy. During Sustainability Week, this strategy is brought to life by the students. It is organised annually by the student parliament with GreenCampus, the graduate association RW Alumni and the Vice President for Digitalisation, Innovation and Sustainability at the university. The aim is to look at the topic of sustainability from a wide variety of perspectives and to keep it present on campus. Through lectures, workshops, panel discussions or guided tours, insights are given into the university's research activities, solution strategies and students' lived commitment. Since 2023, the university's sustainability prize has also been awarded by the president during Sustainability Week. In addition, on 6 July at 6.15 p.m. in the Audimax, a large panel discussion will be organised by the student parliament on the topic of "The challenge of energy transition - prosperity and clean electricity for all?
