If there is anything KTH is widely known for, it’s her push for sustainable development. In fact, KTH was ranked in 2019 as one of the top ten schools in the world, based on UN sustainable development goals. Taking second place for working conditions, third place for innovation and ninth place for climate action. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that we have an active sustainability office.
As a student at KTH, I dare say my time as a student at KTH has sure changed my way of thinking and habits into constantly thinking of sustainable ways of getting things done and habits that will help mitigate the effects of climate change.
In this week before lectures resume, there are so many activities going on at KTH (Tip: pay attention to your mails and the events section on the KTH website, you definitely do not want to miss out on these!!). With this in mind, I decided to share all the events happening this week that are focused on sustainability.
KTH ReUse and ReCycle day at Campus Fair – August,21st
I know, I know I did not give you time to plan ahead. Seeing that this post is coming up on the 20th. Sorry for this. I will make up for this with some interesting info at the end of this post (I promise you’ll be glad you read this post in the end 😁😁). Many different things would be happening on this day on campus. If you own a bike or would like to own one (for free), I’ll bet you would not want to miss the bike day program at 10:00 -14:00. Come along with your bikes as you will be able to get some minor bike services FOR FREE.
The same time the bike day program is going on, the pop-up ReUSe is running simultaneously as well. Do you have any item you’ll love to recycle? If you’re not certain about how to recycle an item, bring it along with you and the team in charge will help out! More so, you can check out the items being dropped and who knows, you might find something you would like. If you do, feel free to pick up and ReUSe 😉
Lunch Seminar: Beyond Recycling
One thing we all love about lunch seminars is, FREE LUNCH!!! I mean lunch seminars is the fusion of every student’s wishlist – learning something that will be beneficial to them + free food. In this lunch seminar, the Vice Mayor of Environment and Climate, Stockholm together with the Vice President for Sustainability at KTH will be in attendance. In addition, the underlying topic is one of broad and current interest on the minds of everyone – Sustainable consumption…
I would leave it at this, attend these events and you’ll be glad you made it;)
