Towards a sustainable world

An environmentally sustainable and just Students Union creates the framework for the best student's life in the world also in the future.

Sustainability is one of the core values of the Student Union. AYY's goal is to lead the way in environmental action and to be a part of the solution in mitigating climate change, preserving biodiversity and combatting other environmental problems.

AYY's goal is to build a university community where sustainability is an integral part of all activities – from services and advocacy to the everyday life of Aalto. Targets, goals and development are monitored and evaluated annually from 2020 onwards through voluntary sustainability reporting.

In addition to its own activities, AYY promotes a more sustainable world in the university community. AYY participates in Aalto University working groups that promote sustainability principles throughout the University.
