Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

Platform for Students towards Sustainability (Psst!)

Our Platform for Students towards Sustainability (Psst!) is a cross-university support platform for student activities in the field of sustainability at all Bernese universities (University of Bern, BFH, PHBern and PH NMS Bern). It serves as a first point of contact for students who want to get involved in this area. The platform is currently in development.

If you have a project idea and/or are looking for other motivated students in the field of sustainability, please contact us:!

Who is behind the project?

The support platform is co-lead by the student association BENE and the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE). In addition, PH Bern, BFH and PH NMS Bern are also on board to support students from all Bernese Universities in their sustainable projects.
