University of Bayreuth, Press Release No. 053/2024 – 08.05.2024

Living commitment on the green campus of the University of Bayreuth

For one week, everything revolves around “sustainability” on the green campus of the University of Bayreuth. This year, the Sustainability Week will take place from 13.05.2024 to 17.05.2024 and will once again offer a diverse program.

Sustainability is firmly anchored in the philosophy of the University of Bayreuth. It was one of the first Bavarian universities to adopt a comprehensive sustainability strategy in 2021. This strategy is brought to life above all by the students of the University of Bayreuth. They demonstrate this every year during Sustainability Week.

It is organized by the Student Parliament in cooperation with GreenCampus and the Vice President for Digitalization, Innovation and Sustainability. Lectures, workshops, discussions and guided tours are primarily intended to give students, but also other interested parties, an insight into the university's sustainability-related research, solution strategies and active engagement on campus. Since 2023, the University's Sustainability Award has also been presented by the President as part of the theme week. The Studierendenwerk Oberfranken is also participating in this year's Sustainability Week and will only be offering vegetarian and vegan dishes at lunchtime in the Frischraum from 13.05.2024 to 17.05.2024.
