Welcome to BFH Sustains

Sustainability is a big promise: For a people's good life - today and in the future, in the North and South. At the same time, it is an urgent social development task that is increasingly coming to the fore. In order to solve these challenges, we need people who stimulate and implement sustainable change in organisations and society, so-called "change agents".

A unique platform

BFH SUSTAINS is the platform to network students like you who are interested in sustainability and to support commitment in the field of sustainability. BFH SUSTAINS promotes, supports and promotes your activities in the field of sustainability.

Projects for everybody

Students from all departments of the BFH can participate in the activities and project work - from the AHB to SoZialen Arbeit. In a project work you can join an existing project, apply for an advertised project or set up your own together with fellow students.

Quality dialogs

We offer you networking events to network with like-minded fellow students, put your ideas into practice - or jump on top of other people's projects. On this page you will also find information about workshops, exciting events and support offers.
