Sustainable and equal campus

We are systematically shaping an increasingly sustainable and responsible way of living at the University, which will better acknowledge the ecological limits of the planet, promote equality, non-discrimination and accessibility as well as ensure the continuity of our operations for future generations.

Sustainability and responsibility in academic day-to-day life includes the development of administration, efforts related to equality and diversity, the promotion of a carbon-neutral circular economy and biodiversity, as well as responsible investment.

In connection with the new strategic plan, we updated the values of the University of Helsinki community. They are truth, Bildung, freedom and inclusivity – the basis for everything we are striving for and everything we see as good or bad.

Values should also be seen, in a concrete manner, in everyday activities.
