Sustainable Development - MRU

Sustainable Development

Let’s study and work in a new way – sustainably! 

  1. Let’s save electricity, heat and water. Turn off unnecessary electrical appliances. Reduce the brightness of the computer screen. Dress according to the season.
  2. Let’s reduce paper consumption. Print only the most necessary documents and on both sides of the sheet. Let’s use recycled printing paper.
  3. Let’s eat healthy. Eat seasonal food grown in Lithuania, try new plant-based recipes, give up disposable dishes.
  4. Let’s reduce the impact of transport. Come to the University by bike or public transport, cooperate with colleagues, walk part of the way.
  5. Let’s buy less, share, recycle. Before buying a new thing, let’s think carefully about whether we really need it or whether we need packaging. Share with family members, friends and neighbors. Let’s give ourselves a deeper recycling challenge.
