Sustainability Network of Universities in Lower Saxony (HochNiNa)

The Sustainability Network of Universities in Lower Saxony (HochNiNa) has been in existence since 2018 and aims to promote exchange and cooperation between those responsible for sustainability at universities in Lower Saxony. It aims to give them a common voice to expand sustainability at the state's higher education institutions.

Sustainability at universities includes not only operational issues such as energy saving, mobility or waste, but also teaching, research, transfer and cooperation, as well as the structures and processes necessary for sustainability at a university and reporting.

In recent years, Lower Saxony's higher education institutions - also due to their different structures and resources - have set very different priorities and developed very different approaches to "sustainability and higher education". The network wants to benefit from this diversity of expertise and ideas and offer a platform for exchange on concrete issues. It also serves as a source of new inspiration and opportunities to reflect on one's own work.

The network works in several thematic working groups.

The last network meeting was hosted at Emden/Leer University of Applied Sciences on 30 June 2022. The next annual meeting will be hosted by the University of Oldenburg in 2023.
