Green Week 2020
A sustainability-oriented event week organized annually for KTH students by KTH students
Date: May 2020
Our VISION is to create a better future for students, businesses and the world by connecting young talents with today’s leading actors within sustainability. Green Week is the main platform where KTH students can get inspired by, interact and network with professionals from different fields that works with sustainable development. This year’s edition is only the third time Green Week is organized, but due to the huge interest to this topic it has become the biggest and one of the most prestigious projects of THS Future.
Inspire students through lunch lectures or arrange visits to your office. Share your view on sustainability and give students insights in how they can work with sustainability at your company.
Engage with students through workshops or case solving events. Get students to work on projects or skills related to your business, or show how you approach and solve a case.
For a sustainable future it is important to not push the responsibility on to someone else. Therefore we are making sustainable choices and are striving to get the certification of “Miljömärkt event”
