Our student union actively takes part in caring for developmental cooperation and the environment. There is an appointed Member of the Board who is specifically responsible for these issues. This person also works with people in the free time activities and the protection of interests sectors to produce themed events. They monitor the University’s work from an environmentally friendly perspective.
