Green Office

What is the Green Office?
The green office is an initiative from the University of Groningen that takes care of promoting sustainability in higher education. There is a central green office organization in Groningen and each faculty has its own green office ambassadors. The green office is a platform where students and employees connect to shape ideas and launch projects at the university, all with the objective to stimulate sustainability. These projects can be both academic in nature through research projects or more operational in nature through practical projects.

Green Office Campus Fryslân
The green office of Campus Fryslân focusses on themes that are related to the sustainable development goals. For example, we can think of projects that promote health in the workplace or projects related to climate action, for example making the canteen more sustainable. A first project that was initiated at Campus Fryslân by the Green Office was a cycling tour with employees from Groningen to Leeuwarden. This tour was part of the Elfwegentocht, an event in which everyone was encouraged to travel fossil free in Friesland for a two-week period.
