For the sixth time, the idealistic Students for Tomorrow have produced a sustainability ranking of universities and universities of applied sciences. In previous years Wageningen was consistently in the top spot, but now that university wins the silver. The bronze goes to Van Hall Larenstein university of applied sciences, which came only tenth last year.
The SustainaBul 2018 was announced this afternoon at TU/e on National Sustainability Day in higher education. The education institutions could score points on four themes: education, research, business operations and ‘overall approach'.
Eindhoven's university won particular acclaim for the sustainable student teams: groups of students who tackle interesting projects. Such as Solar Team Eindhoven, which designed a family car that runs on solar power, and TU/ecomotive with its car that is sustainable in all phases of its life cycle (from production to demolition).
This year nine universities and four universities of applied sciences took part in the ranking.
