Sustainable development shall be holistically anchored in education, research, and innovation. We welcome this federal decision and want to know how this goal can be achieved. At this panel, we will discuss with the rectors of Zurich's universities and the State Secretary how the universities can become international role models for sustainable development.

We will present solutions for the universities, which will be developed during a co-creation-workshop by students, the sustainability offices, and experts from the universities on 4th March. In addition, we address the latest developments of the universities and discuss the next necessary steps considering our demands.

The rectors’ panel discussion takes place every year during the Sustainability Week. We summarized the results from last year’s co-creation-workshop in this booklet  (German only).
