Involvement, participation and behaviour
UCPH’s goal is that:
- All staff and students are to be offered good opportunities and be motivated to practise sustainable behaviour in their day-to-day life at UCPH.
- All staff and students must have the opportunity to engage in specific initiatives and actions aimed at the development of a more sustainable UCPH.
For UCPH to become a sustainable university, sustainability awareness must be anchored in the organisational culture. It is necessary to establish an organisation that can serve as a platform for the joint involvement of employees and students in the transition to a sustainable university.
Cooperation, co-creation and dialogue is necessary to create ownership of the sustainability transition. UCPH has good experience with involving local initiatives and campaigns, through previous Green Action behavioural action plan (2009-2014) with 250 local green ambassadors.
Key data, such as climate footprints for air travel, building use and procurement must be comprised for all units at UCPH. Highlighting consumption and environmental effects will make consequences of decisions and behaviour more tangible.
