Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the context of higher education. This is underlined not least by the side letter to the Higher Education Agreement NRW 2021, in which the universities of NRW commit themselves to making sustainability a stronger focus of research projects and operations.

For TU Dortmund University, sustainable action is one of the operational and strategic goals, whereby it perceives sustainability as a joint task in which all TU members participate.

The concrete goals of the TU Dortmund in the context of sustainability are set out in the sustainability strategy. It also creates a framework for action for the future.

Here you will find opportunities to get involved: whether in one of our projects or in concrete participatory activities. We also make transparent which projects we are working on in the past, present and future. We also want to explain if and why certain (larger) project ideas cannot be carried out at the current time.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to get involved in a project or if you have ideas yourself about what can be done at TU Dortmund University for more sustainability.

In order to be informed about projects and ideas for sustainability at the TU and to be able to exchange ideas with each other, you can subscribe to our mailing list.
