SOS-International Summit 2024


Welcome to the

Students Organising for Sustainability International Summit

From the 14th to the 16th of March, we met so many students and staff who work to improve the sustainability of their institution or the environment daily. In cooperation with the team at the Green Hub of University of Twente, we organized a 3-day event in Enschede, The Netherlands, where we were joined by an incredible group of international sustainability champions. Over these days, over 100 participants from over 40 organizations across Europe, Africa and the Pacific joined us. 

We had sessions on climate justice and effective student campaigning, we explored the role, purpose and impact of the Green Office Movement, and shared learnings on organizing effective sustainability events. We heard from students, student unions, universities and not-for profit organizations on the needs of the higher education sector and beyond for addressing the massive challenges we currently face related to the poly-crises of climate, ecology, wellbeing and social injustice (to name a few). 

Our post summit booklet sharing summaries of all sessions is available below!


Travelling from crisis to perspective:

A holistic journey for sustainability



SOS International has a vision for everyone to come together, so we can learn from each other, support each other and amplify what we’re doing. Nothing will change if we don’t go out there and mobilize and act.”
