On the one hand, with roughly 40,000 students and employees, the Humboldt is like a small local community – and a real-world laboratory for a sustainability-conscious society. On the other hand, with its historic, listed buildings and a dispersed campus spread out across the city, it faces very special challenges. In December 2019, the Academic Senate of the HU set up the “Commission for a Sustainable University” (KNU). Its task: to develop a climate protection strategy for the university and to initiate appropriate measures for its implementation. Back in 2005, the HU already committed to protect natural resources in its environmental guidelines. The student Sustainability Office is resolutely committed to a sustainable university. It will also introduce itself here on humboldts17.de. The HU’s activities for achieving a climate-neutral university also received new momentum through the dedication of the Fridays for Future and Scientists for Future movements. This has been there for all to see in front of the main building since the start of 2020, when scientists started a campaign for the climate. The HU wants to show in practical terms that/how historically developed identity and responsibility can go hand in hand with a transformation process.
