A Faculty for Sustainable Development

sustainable development goals


Coordination group and working groups

To initiate, drive and keep an overview over the sustainable development work at the faculty, and to make systematic and coherent evaluation and followup possible, a coordination group for sustainable development at the Faculty of Medicine has been appointed. The group consists of the responsible Vice Dean, an administrative coordinator, five working group leaders, a doctoral student representative and a student representative. The working groups are based on each one of the prioritized goal areas of the Faculty of Medicine's strategic plan, and are led by persons who already have leadership roles in those areas. The working groups initiate collaborations with different actors at the Faculty and beyond to implement the sustainability goals from our Action Plan.

In the coordination group, working group leaders coordinate themselves with eachother through regular reporting to harmonize the work and to receive information from other parts of Lund University and the environment. They also follow up their work.

The coordination group is also supported by external experts who are invited to meetings on a regular basis. The experts represent key and collaboration actors in the society.
