A tree for my university - donation campaign within the scope of the research project "Sustainable Forest Conversion"

About the campaign


Research project

"Sustainable Forest Conversion" is a research project that deals with the sustainable development of the university's property around Greifswald. Thereby, it follows the global goal to use our resources in a sustainable way. In the project we scientifically explore the manifold functions of the local forest with different ecological methods.

The donated trees will be planted on university property. Research will be done regarding their function as CO2 sinks. By taking up and sequester CO2 the trees can contribute to compensate for the university's CO2-emissions. The compensated CO2-emissions will be attributed in the "CO2-neutral university" project.


Donation campaign

The donation campaign "A tree for my university" is part of the research project "Sustainable Forest Conversion". Staff, students, alumni and external people can become a godparent for a tree. With your donation you support in the scope of our sustainability research the planting of indigenous tree species. By doing that you help to convert monocultural forest areas in nature-oriented mixed forests stands and to plant and maintain traditionally managed orchards.
