Project Goals

During this project we aim at making Nordic HEIs more familiar with Rio+20 commitments. We challenge all Nordic universities to sign a commitment for supporting Rio+20 sustainability goals, and to implement sustainable initiatives.

The most important concrete targets are:

  1. to inventory  the steering mechanisms used in guiding sustainability work in Nordic higher education institutes (HEIs)
  2. to find central drivers and barriers in the sustainability work in Nordic HEIs
  3. to find measures to overcome the most severe barriers and ways to improve the steering measures
  4. to create joint Nordic recommendations for enhancing sustainability in HEIs

We additionally aim at having even more members to join NSCN and to participate into this project. Through these targets the project works as a follow-up of Rio+20 in the Nordic HEIs.
