TUM Green Office Weihenstephan

The Green Office Weihenstephan is a student sustainability office – a joint project of the TUM Sustainability Office and the TUM School of Life Sciences. After the Green Office Straubing, it is already the second of its kind at TUM.

What the Green Office does

The TUM Green Office Weihenstephan is the central contact point for sustainability at the Weihenstephan campus. As ambassadors and advocates for sustainability, we specify the TUM sustainability strategy and implement it on site. We initiate, support and realize projects to build a community and make our campus more sustainable.

The activities of the Green Office focus on:

  • providing information about & raising awareness of sustainability,
  • building a network to connect all collaborators, actors and stakeholders,
  • promoting and supporting education for sustainable development,
  • supporting the campus development towards a Living Lab for sustainability by linking research and teaching.
  • organizing the TUM Sustainability Day

The Green Office Weihenstephan regularly organizes events to instill a sustainability-driven mindset in students and encourage their participation in sustainable activities. The events include:

  • The Sustainable Dinner, where students were engaged in cooking together by using saved food from supermarkets.
  • The Swap party, where they were involved in exchanging clothes, books, and plants.
  • The Nature Through Art workshop, where students used waste materials to create art objects.


All these events focus on setting the mindset of reducing and reusing potential waste by putting value in natural resources.
The events are being scheduled to hold periodically.
