This page provides an overview of sustainability-related initiatives and networks in which Bielefeld University is currently involved.
In order to advance the sustainability process and to give university members the opportunity to participate in exchange forums on the topic of sustainability at universities, the university is a member of DG Hoch N . The German Society for Sustainability at Universities(https://www.dg-hochn.de/) emerged from the BMBF-funded project "Hoch-N"(https://www.hochn.uni-hamburg.de/) for the development and dissemination of sustainability at universities, which ended in 2021. DG Hoch N acts as the central successor and coordinating unit of HOCH-N.
Institutional membership allows all university members (explicitly including students) to participate and co-discuss, for example, one of the various HUBs on topics such as Innovative Teaching Formats for ESD, Climate Neutrality at Universities, Sustainability Reports or Green Offices and Student Engagement. Information on the various (growing) offerings can be found on the website(https://www.dg-hochn.de/dg-hochn-veranstaltungen). A newsletter can also be ordered(https://www.listserv.dfn.de/sympa/subscribe/dg-hochn).
