Fairtrade University

Leuphana was one of the first universities in Germany to be awarded the title in February 2016. The student body, the administration and the gastronomy on campus are committed to a common goal. In this way, the university assumes its social responsibility and promotes awareness of sustainable consumption.
To receive the seal of approval, the university has integrated the topic into its teaching, offers university members fair trade products on campus and organises public events that raise awareness of sustainable consumption.

In addition, students have brought the topic to life by founding their own companies: With "Lünebohne" they sell fair-trade coffee and are enthusiastic about sustainable consumption, while "MELAWEAR" sells 100% fairtrade and certified organic clothing and the world's first fairtrade and certified organic backpack.
