The sustainable development and responsibility programme of the Karelia UAS community has been published. Responsibility is one of our three values. The will to act as an employer and as a higher education community responsibly and promoting sustainable development is based on our values and strategy. We have also defined the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which we promote through our strategic choices.
– The program fits tightly into our strategy. Karelia builds a more sustainable society through education and research, development and innovation (RDI). We can achieve this together with our competent and sustainable values-based higher education community, says Rector Petri Raivo.
In Karelia’s program, we take into account the ecological, social & cultural and economic dimensions from the perspective of our higher education community, educational activities as well as research, development and innovation activities. The programme has been built since spring 2022 with a pilot group of management and personnel, and at the end of 2022 all personnel and students had the opportunity to participate in the development of the programme.
The programme is a tabular workbook, the implementation of which we constantly evaluate. We update the programme annually, taking into account the measures taken and development targets. Karelia’s sustainable development and responsibility group will update the programme and coordinate its implementation.
The programme can be found here on our website.
