Our goal is to promote sustainable thinking and action at universities in Baden-Württemberg, to make existing commitment visible and to motivate students to become active themselves. The format of the Sustainability Weeks is perfectly suited for this: Through various events and actions, sustainability moves to the center of university life, diverse perspectives can be experienced and the impact of interdisciplinary cooperation can be unfolded. At the same time, the broad alliance of students should show that we expect more from our universities in terms of sustainability: Sustainability must be the foundation in all areas, including governance, operations, research, teaching, and transfer both internally and externally. Universities must fulfill their role model function and become pioneers in the socio-ecological transformation.
In recent years, numerous student initiatives from more than 20 universities in Baden-Württemberg have participated in the Sustainability Weeks @ Universities Baden-Württemberg. These include the universities in Stuttgart, Hohenheim and Ulm, as well as the universities in Aalen and Mannheim, the Stuttgart Media University, the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University, the Ludwigsburg University of Education and the Ulm University of Technology. See the page Local for a map of more participating universities.
Due to the composition of students from very different specialized universities, we have a broad spectrum of different disciplines – so we all bring very individual skills to the organization of the Sustainability Weeks. This is especially evident in the diverse, interdisciplinary programs of the previous Sustainability Weeks @ Universities BaWü!
