Netzwerk N is a collaborative network, which encourages and supports discussion groups, workshops and initiatives for change within German higher education institutions. Netzwerk N also supports the idea that the issue of sustainability of our world should be a key part of higher education for all.

Through its platform “plattform n”, the initiative has also created a tool to help individual initiatives to organise themselves and to collaborate with other initiatives on a digital platform, which itself complies with sustainability goals (it is an open source platform, uses servers which protect data sovereignty and are powered by sustainable energy supplies).

This is an important collaborative initiative, which aims to expand our view of higher education, to support students’ personal development and hopes to prepare students for contributing to a fairer, more open and more sustainable world in the future.
