WU welcomes its new students – and so does the Green Buddies’ initiative


The WU Welcome Days (15-16 Sept) took place online this year. STaR Fellow Laura Bauer presented the cross-campus initiative Green Buddies. . .

At the start of each academic year, WU hosts an interactive on-campus event to welcome its incoming bachelor’s students. Because of the COVID-19 induced social distancing restrictions, this year, the event was held online. Nevertheless, it maintained its interactive character, including a wide variety of videos, keynotes, panel sessions, and live chats for Q/A.

STaR fellow Laura Bauer participated in a special livestream panel session on extracurricular programs. At the core of her presentation was the Green Buddies initiative, in which students, staff, and faculty come together on regular basis, and exchange ideas on how to promote environmental sustainability and raise the awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals on our campus. This initiative is co-run by the Campus Environmental Management team and STaR. Learn more about the Green Buddies here [in German]!

Once again, welcome incoming students!
