Sustainability Week

A week of collaboration to empower our university

The theme for Sustainability Week 2022 was Empowerment, which encompassed empowerment as a consumer, as a future professional or leader, and as a global citizen.

Sustainability Week is a five-day event that brings together University of Adelaide students, clubs, staff and special guests for a series of workshops, panels, films and other activities that aim to foster positive discussion and practical sustainability on and off campus.

Sustainability Week 2022 saw student clubs, societies, Institutes and Faculties participated in more than 30 activities held at North Terrace, AHMS and Roseworthy campuses. All events were FREE and everyone was welcomed - but sustainability is not just one week of the year. We encourage you to continue the conversations started.
