The SASSE Sustainability Group (SSG) is a sustainability initiative, formed as an Independent Project in SASSE. SSG strives to promote the subject of economic, environmental & social sustainability* within SASSE and SSE. This is accomplished through our various projects and events, often in collaboration with various businesses, NGOs, and nonprofits.
*Sustainability is a vague term, which is why it can be beneficial to divide it into more concrete parts. A great way to understand these different divisions is to look at the UN:s 2030 SDG:s:
Social sustainability – The promotion of intersectional equality and rights, as well as ensuring fair living conditions for everyone.
Economic sustainability – Sustaining economic growth that’s fair across nation borders as well as between current & future generations.
Environmental sustainability – Preserving ecosystems, the environment & fighting against climate change.
