Sustainability, leadership and change in focus when European students met at EuroEnviro2015

News: Jun 25, 2015

The 20th European Student Symposium on the Environment was held in May 2015 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The symposium gathered 60 students from 27 different countries and 20 academic fields, ranging from environmental science to political science and design. During seven days they got the chance to share knowledge and inspire each other to lead efforts towards a more sustainable society.

EuroEnviro is an annual European student symposium on the environment. It is held every year in different European countries, by students for fellow students. The aim is to inspire and create an arena for the exchange of ideas within sustainability.

Theme: Catalysts of Change
The theme of EuroEnviro2015 was Catalysts of Change, with the object to explore what lies between idea and execution. How do we promote change in mindsets, businesses, societies and systems? What are the driving forces and catalysts of change?
The symposium was organized by students from the School of Business, Economics and Law at University of Gothenburg. A core group of about ten students were active in planning on a volunteer basis for a whole year to make the symposium a reality.
- We are satisfied, it was a really cool experience. The participants worked out ideas during the week, and after that we had a pitch workshop. The symposium has received great response from the participants, who feel they have the energy, inspiration and tools with them in their continued involvement at home, says Martin Ahrin-Larsson, project manager for EuroEnviro2015.

The evaluation also shows that EuroEnviro2015 was appreciated by the participants. On a question of their over-all impression the result was on average 4.71 out of 5.

After the seven-day program, the students went home with tools and knowledge, but also with the courage to motivate themselves and others to lead efforts towards a more sustainable society.
