Welcome to SustainMV - The Sustainability Summer School!

Our Mission

We Make Sustainability a Priority

In the summer of 2021 SustainMV took place for the very first time. This one of a kind event is a joint project of six universities who have made sustainability their prioroty. That is: University of Greifswald, University of Rostock, University of Music and Drama Rostock, University of Applied Sciences, Technology, Business and Design Wismar, University of Applied Sciences Stralsund and University of Applied Sciences Neubrandenburg.

Together, all universities in MV present north-east Germany as the fantastic location for sustainability education, research and business that it is.

This unparalleled cooperation between all universities of one region is a huge step towards a joint perspective on international work and finding new and maybe even surprising potentials. Furthermore, it creates a common higher education area in north-east Germany, which would no doubt be a benefit for academics and students alike.

SustainMV promotes MV as a unique location of higher education and as a great place to study internationally.
