The Sustainability day has been a successful annual event at Chalmers, aimed at employees and students, and very appreciated with the highest number of participants in 2013 with more than 700 registrations. The Sustainability Day returns this year after a short break, on the initiative of Chalmers Areas of Advance, with First Vice President Anna as owner of the event.
The program of the day will be based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030
) and the overall theme for this year is Good Health and Well-being. The health theme is represented in goal 3, but is interrelated to all of the 17 global goals.
Health issues concern individuals, groups and society at large – from a local to global level. Chalmers can contribute in important ways to achieve goal 3 through research and innovation. Additionally, our work for good health and well-being is also a prerequisite for Chalmers as a sustainable environment for students and employees.
An organising group formed by AoA Energy is responsible for planning and implementing the day. The organising group is supported by a reference group with representatives from all the AoAs, educational areas and student representatives to capture initiatives from the entire organisation.
