For a sustainable university

Vote for ambition

4.1 For more sustainable university buildings

The Independent Student wants:
– Old university buildings to be insulated to modern standard;
– The roof of university buildings to be covered in solar panels;
– Modern heating in all university buildings;

The University of Groningen owns over 50 buildings in the Groninger city centre. Many of which are over a hundred years old. These buildings require a lot of energy to be heated since they are poorly insulated.

The Independent Students wants all university buildings to be insulated to the modern standard, and to be equipped with modern heating systems to reduce the environmental footprint of the university. Additionally, these buildings have a large roof surface, which is perfect for solar panels.
