Who we are

rootlinks team

We are a non-profit organisation sustained by committed students. The rootlinks team as well as the students solving the sustainability challenges work as volunteers alongside their studies. Our team consists of an interdisciplinary range of students all committed to the idea of linking students and organisations to work on sustainability challenges.

Our mission

Our mission is to enable students to become changemakers for sustainability following this concept: During the semester-long rootlinks programme, students from all Zurich universities solve real-world sustainability challenges in interdisciplinary teams. They benefit from skills training, mentoring and new career options. The company, non-profit or public institution that has posed the sustainability challenge receives innovative ideas and an implementable solution.
