What we do

Our goal is to bring sustainability to students by organizing activities related to sustainability.

Sustainability Week

Every year in March, we organize a week full of activities related to sustainability. Movie nights, comedy shows, interviews and much more. Check out our program here!

University politics

We sit together with the student representatives and the personnel of the different universities to convince them to be more sustainable.


We cooperate with all five universities to organize ourselves. Thus we work together with NaKt, NHK, SSC, VERSO NK and VN PHZH to make all of this happen.


We try to convince the mensas of the universities to use more sustainable dishes. The more local and vegetarian, the better!

11 – 15 March

Get ready to have a blast during Sustainability Week! We’ve cooked up an awesome lineup of events that’ll make you feel good about saving the planet – all while having a great time!

Without our team we would not be able to organize all of this. Get to know them here!

Our Sponsors

Without our sponsors we would be nothing. We therefore sincerely thank the universities and the student associations that support our sustainability week.
