Sustainable students travelled to Iceland by sea

On the first weekend in June, 13 students from the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg travelled to Iceland to study the country’s conversion to green energy.

To minimise their environmental impact, the students travelled by boat instead of flying. Those on the trip included students of law, environmental economics, human geography and statistics and they all have a common interest in climate change and sustainability issues. The project, called EnviroTravel, is run by the organization Handels Students for Sustainability (HaSS), which is an association for students at the School of Business, Economics and Law who want to work for sustainable development. This year’s trip to Iceland is being financed by the university’s internal climate fund. Read more about the project in a piece of news published by The Centre for Environment and Sustainability before the trip.
