University of Mannheim Launches New Sustainability Campaign

With the new “#SustainableUniMA – I will make a difference by...” campaign, members of the University of Mannheim talk about what they do (or don’t do) to contribute to a more sustainable world.

Creating a sustainable economy and society is one of the most urgent challenges for all of us. In the “#SustainableUniMA – I will make a difference by ...” campaign, which was initiated by Professor Moritz Fleischmann, Vice President for Sustainability, members of the University of Mannheim are facing this challenge and provide an answer in the form of a personal statement about the actions they take in their personal or professional life or as students to contribute to a sustainable future. The goal of the campaign is to inspire others to take similar actions and to reflect on the impact they could make. In the statements, “sustainability” is understood within the meaning of the UN’s 17 goals for a sustainable development and includes economic, ecological, and social dimensions.

All members of the university – students, teachers, researchers, and administrative staff are invited to bring their perspective to this campaign. After you have given your approval, the statements will be published on a website as well as bi-weekly on the Intranet and the university’s social media channels.
