Student & employee engagement
In fall 2018, the Sustainability Office received CHF 70,000 in external funding to support student sustainability projects, resulting in the founding of IMPULS – Facilitating Service Learning for Sustainability. In March 2018, student clubs played an active part in organizing the exciting program for “Tatort Mobilität” Sustainability Week.
Funding student projects and students’ commitment to sustainability
Funding of up to CHF 1,000 per project along with coaching for student projects through the BOOST fund
In 2018, these seven clubs at the University of Basel committed themselves to sustainability or sustainable development. Specifically, this means that they have made a social and ecological commitment in their activities. In 2018, several had their own program elements, which contributed to the success of the Sustainability Week «Tatort Mobilität». This also included Students for Sustainability at the University of Basel (SDUBS). SDUBS is specifically involved in events and activities aimed at making the University of Basel more sustainable. Several clubs also received start-up grants from BOOST or support to implement projects.
Getting involved pays off!
In 2018, one student initiative started a petition to reduce air travel, which was advocated by the University of Basel Senate in December 2018. Together with the relevant stakeholders, the Sustainability Office is working on an implementation concept for reducing air travel, which will be submitted in the fall semester 2019.
