Sustainable development involves a good environment, but also the interplay of three mutually dependent parts - ecological sustainability, economic sustainability and social sustainability.

We work to increase the knowledge and insight of the students and staff concerning a sustainable development. The university's overall and long-term objective is, among other things, to:

Integrate knowledge and competence in sustainable development in research and educationIntegrate knowledge and competence in sustainable development in continuing professional development for the university employees
