The first UNIgreen Student Conference was a success

The first UNIgreen Student Conference organized by students for students took place on 8-10 November at SGGW.

During the three days meeting, the students talked about their role in the UNIgreen alliance and the most important goals that the alliance should pursue from their perspective. The program also included time for getting to know each other, visiting one of the local experimental plants of SGGW and visiting the city of Warsaw.

Summing up the three-days meeting, the students stressed that their knowledge of the alliance’s tasks had increased significantly. They would also like to be actively involved in all substantive areas of the alliance. A large part of the discussion focused on sustainability and environmental protection. Students would like everything that happens within the alliance to be subordinated to a genuine concern for the environment.

The meeting in Warsaw is to be the beginning of intensive cooperation. The students are already planning another in-Person meeting in about one month and intensive cooperation on a daily basis using means of remote communication.

Prof. Marta Mendel, the Vice-Rector for the International Cooperation, summed up the conclusions and expressed satisfaction that the meeting in Warsaw brought so many interesting discussions, but also concrete findings. Presenting certificates to the participants of the meeting invited them to consider returning to SGGW – also in the role of visiting students.

The meeting was attended by students from all universities of the Alliance. It was organized by the Student Council of SGGW.
