HAFL’s Sustainability Day

BFH-HAFL invites you to its first Sustainability Day: Join us to find out what steps we are taking for a greener future!

08.06.2023, 9am–7.30pm – BFH-HAFL, Zollikofen

BFH aims to be climate-neutral by 2030, the same year the ambitious United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are to be achieved. BFH-HAFL is already working towards more sustainability in its teaching programme, research and operations, and will step up this commitment in the future.

The BFH-HAFL Sustainability Group is organising a Sustainability Day for the first time. The aim of this internal event is to:

  • increase the visibility of HAFL’s sustainability actions
  • provide practical support for sustainable behaviour
  • generate ideas for future activities

All students and staff at BFH-HAFL are welcome!
