Viewpoints on environmental sustainability in the activities of ISHA Helsinki

International Students of History Association Helsinki (ISHA Helsinki) focuses on environmental sustainability in all its activities and act as environmentally friendly as possible.

We strive towards minimizing the amount of waste produced in our events and board meetings. In addition, all possible waste is recycled. We use reusable tableware in our events and favor vegetarian, organic, domestic and fair trade foodstuffs when possible.

For board meetings, we print materials on paper sparingly, and we prefer using email and other electronic forms of communication when possible to avoid unnecessary waste. The association encourages its members to choose environmentally friendly means of transport when traveling to seminars abroad. When traveling inside the capital area or the rest of Finland, ISHA encourages its members to prefer public transport.
