About the Programme
Sustainability Advocates is a volunteer and educational program that runs under the roof of Station (Student Innovation House Copenhagen). It targets students and recent graduates from multiple educational backgrounds, who wish to make an impact in the field of sustainability. Through the program students gain knowledge on sustainability and how to implement it into meaningful projects, working together with companies and institutions in the Copenhagen area.
Sustainability Advocates is an entirely student-driven program where students can implement their own sustainability-related project ideas and take ownership. The program consists of a Leadership Team that jointly defines the framework of the program, commits to 4 projects, and sets goals for them. After this kick-off phase, the leadership team then recruits students to work with them on these projects for a time frame of 4 months.
