Jönköping University (JU) is set to make its mark during the annual Climate Week taking place from 16th to 22nd October in Jönköping County. With the theme, “Energy – we have the power, together,” the week promises to focus on collaborative efforts to address pressing climate concerns.
The Climate Week is an initiative by the Climate Council and seeks to underscore the county's vision of transitioning to a climate-smart plus-energy county by 2045. Representing JU in the Climate Council, University Director Eva Gipperth emphasized the significance of the week. “It’s a platform that not only highlights the climate initiatives in the region but also facilitates the exchange and dissemination of vital knowledge about ongoing climate work," Gipperth remarked. For JU, this week serves as an opportunity to align its strategic goals with the broader sustainability objectives of the county.
JU's active participation in Climate Week showcases the university's commitment to climate and sustainability initiatives. By leveraging its expertise, research, and collaborative spirit, JU is not only contributing to Jönköping County's vision but also setting an example for academic institutions worldwide.
