We want to inspire you to live a sustainable life

As a student at the University of Gävle, it is easy to act in an environmentally friendly way. We try to include questions about the environment and sustainability in our programmes and courses so that you, as a graduate, can bring that into your work- and private life.

The University of Gävle is certified according to the ISO 14001 standard for our environmental management system and we are continuously working to make improvements in the area of sustainability. We hope you will join us in this mission.

This is what you can do to make a difference: 

  • Take the bike! Many houses and student apartments are located ten minutes, at the most, from the University.

  • Engage yourself in the discussion! You can talk to your teachers about bringing up questions of sustainability on your courses. Or you can make a suggestion for improvement to the Council for Sustainable Development.  

  • Sort your waste! You can easily sort both recyclables and food waste at the waste sorting stations at University of Gävle. 

  • Eat more greens! If you want to skip meat every now and then that shouldn't be a problem. Campus always serve a vegetarian option and the coffee is organically produced (KRAV-labelled).
