WHAT HAPPENED IN WEEK 9?

 

Sustainability lecture with Deborah Rupert

On Wednesday 27th February, the 2nd Sustainability lunch lecture with the topic “Inner sustainability - is your mind healthy” with Deborah Rupert took place. We fed a total of 46 attendees with some lunch sandwiches while they where learning on how to stay focused and healthy also during very stressful situations of their studies.

 

Moreover, the student group Lindholmen students for sustainability and your chairwoman Verena were meeting the early Start-up Swapster to organize the 3rd lunch lecture that will take place on 27/3 in Torg Grön.  Swapster offers a Green IT solution - an App that helps people directly minimize their climate footprint.

TRAVEL FUNDING OPPORTUNITY FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS FROM GU

“Dear exchange students and international master students at the University of Gothenburg,

At our university, we constantly strive to make internationalization and mobility more sustainable. During the spring semester 2019, there is a sustainability project which may be interesting for you who travel to and from Gothenburg by other means of transport than flying.

The project, administered by a group of students, is called “Sustainable Exchange Travelling“ and is financed by the internal Climate Fund at the University of Gothenburg. The aim is to support international students and outgoing exchange students who travel to and from Gothenburg without flying. If you choose to travel by train, bus and/or ferry, the project can provide a 50% refund of the ticket costs (with a max. refund of 2000 SEK per way). The current project is limited to the spring semester 2019 and can cover either one way or both ways (i.e. the journey here and back). If you choose to go home at the end of the semester by train, ferry and/or bus, it is also possible to still sign up and get the refund for just that way.
