Transition Ghent University

Who are we?

The Think Tank Transition UGent has been active since 2012 and presents itself as an open innovation network in which knowledge workers, policy makers, dreamers, doers, translators to practice and builders to practice come together to formulate ideas for a sustainable university.

What are we doing?

The Think tank works on various sustainability themes and to that end have formulated visions for the future, offering appealing designs for a sustainable university.

They set out transition paths on the themes of education and research, mobility, energy, purchasing and waste management, food, water and greenery. They published this in a memorandum ‘together towards a sustainable university’ (in Dutch).

Your expertise and commitment is heartily welcome!
