Green UG - submit your project and be part of the green transformation of the campus!


The University of Gdańsk is launching the first special edition of the Academic Citizens' Budget called Green University of Gdańsk - Zielony Uniwersytet Gdański (Green UG - Zielony UG). Projects that will contribute to the green transformation of our university can be submitted to the competition. Students, doctoral students, academics and administration staff are invited to submit their proposals starting from Monday, March 18, 2024. The Green UG competition is implemented as part of the SEA-EU 2.0 project financed from Erasmus+ funds.

The aim of running the Green UG competition is to increase our commitment to the environmental and social transformation of the University of Gdańsk. Therefore, the invitation to participate in the competition is addressed to the entire academic community: students and doctoral students, academic teachers and administration staff.

A gross amount of PLN 80,000.00 is allocated for the implementation of projects in the 2024 edition. The cost estimate for a single project cannot exceed PLN 20,000 gross.

How can you submit your project?

You are welcome to form mixed teams and propose projects that will contribute to the green transformation of the UG campus. Each team should involve at least one person from two different groups in our community. The call for entries starts at 8:00 a.m. on March 18, 2024, and will close at 11:59 p.m. on April 8, 2024.

Projects submitted to the Green University of Gdańsk competition should include materials or equipment needed for e.g.:

  • initiatives to reduce the use of paper and other office supplies;
  • management of rainwater, green waste, composting;
  • effective waste separation;
  • reducing consumption of electricity, water and other resources;
  • launching community gardens that will be cared for by staff and students;
