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: Universität Greifswald, Universität Rostock, Hochschule für Musik und Theater Rostock, Hochschule Wismar, Hochschule Stralsund and Hochschule Neubrandenburg.

Together, all universities in MV will 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 will promote MV as a unique location of higher education and as a great place to study internationally.
