Our Future: Environment and Sustainability at AKU
AKU is committed to building a healthier and more sustainable future.
Our vision involves every area of university life, as we aim to mobilise the internal community and engage external stakeholders as change agents, and contribute to a culture of sustainability and innovation at AKU.
