The University of Konstanz as an institution as well as everyone working here contribute in many ways to maintaining earth as a place worth living in. Our university defines the term of sustainable development very broadly in accordance with the 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations building on a globally shared and democratically legitimated understanding of sustainability. For us, sustainability involves the economy, society, politics and ecology.
