University for sustainability, sustainable university

Sustainability is a core area of focus at the University of Kassel and thus deeply rooted in research and teaching.

The development towards a more sustainable way of life is one of the major global challenges of our time. Meeting this challenge requires clever scientists who network and work in an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary manner.

The SDG+ Lab brings together science, business and society and develops ideas and concrete solutions for a sustainable Kassel and North Hesse region in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

The university strives to be a pioneer and model for social change. To fulfil this role model function, it places particular importance on gradually evolving in line with the goals it has set itself in its fields of action.
