Sustainability as a Guiding Principle

Vice Rectorate for Sustainability

Professor Dr. Annette Scheersoi is the Vice Rector for Sustainability. For the University of Bonn, located in the German city of the United Nations, sustainability is an overarching issue of unique and central importance that affects all areas.


Sustainability concerns all of us. I am very pleased that a separate vice rectorate has been created for this area to emphasize its special importance to our University. Our goal is to help create a viable future for our society and deal responsibly with nature. To achieve this, sustainability should be an integral part of our research, teaching and operations. As Vice Rector, I am looking forward to working together with all of you to promote sustainability at our University.
