Sustainability at RWTH Workshop

On March 8, 2021, more than 100 university members discussed the topic of sustainability at RWTH in four working groups:

  • Research – Science
  • Teaching and Learning – Studies
  • Campus Operations
  • International Affairs – Society – Social Matters

In addition to performing a SWOT analysis, each working group formulated objectives for a more environmentally sustainable University.
