Green Buddies

Urban Garden

Green Buddies is a diverse group of WU Vienna students, staff, and faculty, who actively engage in sustainability efforts — especially issues that touch daily life and work experience — on the WU campus. Many of the group’s ideas have already been implemented, including the Bring Your Own Box (BYOB) initiative for a more sustainable approach to take-out meals at the participating restaurants on and around campus, the Urban Garden (behind the LC building), and a reusable coffee cup system.

The initiative is conjointly coordinated by the Environmental Management (Campus Management) and STaR.

The group generally meets four times a year. In addition, its members stay in touch via email exchanges and a regularly issued newsletter. Please note that the working language of the Green Buddies group is German. Hence, if you are looking for more information, please switch to the Deutsch version of this page (right side of the screen).
