SiNC: who we are and what we do

Sustainability gains more and more importance to society and therefore the number of initiatives getting involved in this topic is increasing.
To get known to more people, we decided to connect us: three small groups. That’s how SiNC evolved (student initiatives for a sustainable campus). At the moment, this means Studium oecologicum, UniSolar e.V. and Bunte Wiese Potsdam.
We’ve planted some fruit trees at Griebnitzsee and built up a sign in Golm containing all sustainable projects at the campus. Furthermore, we’ve organized a discussion round to collect the opinions and ideas around sustainability all along the university and we’re now thinking how to put these into practice. We started 2019 by designing new versions of Save Energy stickers. The new ones are simpler and contain only one of the topics (close windows, turn down the heating, turn off the light, take only two paper towels) and there will be not only stickers, but hopefully also poster.

If you have an own idea how to improve our university or you’re interested in our projects, write us an email or join our monthly meeting 2nd Wednesday, 5 o'clock pm, at Madia, Lindenstraße 47 in Potsdam)! It's summer and holiday season, therefore our meetings are irregular. Our next meeting is on Monday, 5th of August, 6 o'clock at Madia.

Action: let's water again!

We've planted seven fruit trees planted near campus Griebnitzsee last summer. They started into this spring (look here for photos of flowering trees). Despite the yearly "hair cut" (done on 18th of March) they need regular watering in the warmer and drier parts of the year.

We look for people helping us watering and cutting the trees - write us an email, if you're interested!
