The Executive Board of Leiden University has taken over a climate petition signed by more than 1,600 students. The Climate Call calls on the university to show decisiveness and ambition in the field of sustainability. The petition included a call to develop a sustainability vision for 2030 and to make sustainability one of the ambitions in the new institutional plan. This includes operations, education and the frame of research.
With the involvement of employees, students and other parties such as LUGO, the university will start to develop a sustainability vision this year.
