On Saturday the 13th of January, over 30 students from all over Switzerland came together in Bern to share and discuss how we are organising the first Swiss Sustainability Week! On 26th February 2018 the first edition of the SSW will be inaugurated with an opening event at University of Zurich. In the following weeks, more than 100 events in 11 cities will take place. All organized voluntarily by students, free of charge and open to the public.
Every city shared some of their best events: from flee markets, fashion shows, food waste tables to zero waste workshops, the extremely diverse program offers something for everyone. But not only the successes, but also the biggest challenges the organizing teams are facing were shared and in small breakout groups possible solutions were discussed.
Overall, we are overwhelmed by the motivation & spirit of everybody involved in organizing a local sustainability initiative at their universities and are looking forward to more than 100 events in March and to make a real change at Swiss universities!
