The University of Gävle is a member of the European university alliance called EU GREEN, which stands for European Universities Alliance for Sustainability Growth, Inclusive Education, and Environment. This alliance comprises nine educational institutions in nine different countries, and sustainability is the overarching theme of their collaboration.

There are nine Work Packages (WP) with international working groups formed for each package, involving participants from all nine countries. WP 5, Engagement for Sustainable Societies and Economies, is led by Atlantic Technical University (ATU) in Ireland and focuses on collaboration. WP 5 serves as a hub for various collaboration projects in which the university is involved. This can include collaboration within the international network and, perhaps most importantly, collaboration with the local community.

Citizen science, involving the local population in data collection for research and the development of methods and models, is a central concept within the network. The aim is to both engage the local community in gathering research data and to disseminate new knowledge that can contribute to the transition to a more sustainable society.

The seminar is organized by Atlantic Technological University and delivered by partners in the EU GREEN University Alliance
