On 31 May and 1 June, a second U4 Workshop on Sustainability took place in Uppsala. In this session, experts of all U4 partner universities participated. The members represented various bodies concerned with sustainability, such as environment offices, green offices, and deptartments on sustainability research, program managers and scientists. Student delegations of all partners also joined the meeting.
The aim of the meeting was to follow-up on the frontrunner approach, initiated at the first Sustainability Peer Review meeting (Ghent, 15-16 September 2016). The frontrunner approach involves the implementation of a chosen frontrunner idea or best practice at the own institution in one of the many dimensions of sustainability: Sustainability Policy, Energy Policy and Mobility, Sustainability Education, Green Office, Involvment of Students etc. On occasion of the meeting other possibilities for joint projects with the U4 sustainability network were also addressed.
