About us

The Swiss Sustainability Week was initiated in 2017 by the Sustainability Week Zurich (NHW), Sustainability Week Geneva (EDD) and the Swiss Association of Student Organisations for Sustainability (VSN/FDD/FSS).

In 2018 the Swiss Sustainability Week will take place at tertiary education institutions in 12 Swiss cities. Each city will offer an exciting program of events, which are organised by students and free and open to all.

The organising teams are also active in requesting their universities to act more sustainably and serve as role models for the broader community. Some teams are also working with their cafeterias to develop and promote more sustainable and ethical food options.

The Swiss Sustainability Week is financially supported by U-Change and the Stiftung Mercator, as well as our local tertiary education institutions.
