Sustainability is very much in the spotlight. Fortunately more and more people are starting to realise that making the way we live in the world more sustainable is essential for present and future generations. In the new Strategy 2024 of Erasmus University Rotterdam, sustainability is therefore one of the seven priorities.
"We embrace the concept of sustainable development as a global footprint for dignity, peace and prosperity for people and the planet."
Aiming for our mission means making real choices, and considering the economic and environmental consequences of those choices. We embrace the concept of sustainable development as a global footprint for dignity, peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. We want to contribute to a sustainable society by critical and dedicated thinking, teaching, and action in research, education and operations, as well as in our partnerships.
