Would you like to contribute to developing sustainable initiatives at AU? Join us for a sustainability seminar. The programme includes inspirational talks, a short presentation of existing sustainable solutions at AU as well as a brainstorm session on ideas for new sustainable solutions. All interested employees and students are welcome.
The purpose of the seminar is to kickstart a greater focus on sustainability at AU. The ideas generated at the seminar will be presented to AU’s senior management. The discussions will also serve as inspiration for a future sustainability strategy at AU.
This is an opportunity to share your ideas about how we at AU – both as an institution and individual employees/students – can make AU greener and more sustainable.
Ideas can range from initiatives that require a managerial action, for example in relation to procurement or waste separation, to initiatives that require a behavioural change of employees and students at AU – reminders to save energy, print less, reduce air travel etc. All ideas are welcome.
Date: 21 March
Check-in and networking begin at 13:30
Refreshments: Coffee and cake
Everyone is welcome and participation is free. There is a limited number of seats. They will be allocated on a first come, first served basis).
