Sustainable Universities

Universities are the place where future-relevant knowledge is produced, innovative and problem-solving concepts are developed and the decision-makers of tomorrow are trained. Universities can and should - in view of the global challenges - act as pioneers and initiators for ideas and strategies for sustainable development in society!

The gW/N would like to support the BOKU in this social mission!


  • we strengthen sustainability at universities in the sense of the whole institution approach (i.e. in the areas of teaching, research, operations, management and 3rd mission), both within the BOKU and in cooperation with other universities
  • we act as a contact and service point for internal BOKU stakeholders (rectorate, departments, service points, etc.) in questions of institutional sustainability
  • we play a key role in teaching and education for sustainable development
