We are working in a decentralized but harmonized way.
The body of the climate plan consists of thematic working groups: they cover the most important domains through which our University impacts the climate.
Apart from these, a couple of more management-oriented working groups do what’s necessary to actually realise the Climate Action Plan (Core Team; Communication; Finance; Research & Education). All working groups are tied together by the plenary sessions (once/month).
The common channels and platforms for communication and collaboration (google drive, trello, monthly newsletter) and our soon-to-be-hired coordinator (as of April/May). Finally, we will establish an advisory board of experts that can provide their guidance and network to the Climate Plan Project.
By harmonizing the way we work, we lower the barriers for new enthusiasts to join, and for ourselves and each other to tune in to the other WGs and see the big picture. We believe this ultimately makes us collaborate better.
