About us

Team Sustainable Society

The Sustainable Society Office consists of a team of four employees. We have established a Scientific Council with members from different faculties who function as an advisory board in further developing Sustainable Society within the UG. Next, we have a Steering Committee consisting of 7 Deans. Curious who we are? Meet the SuSo team below!
