The Student Parliament works continuously to push the University of Oslo in a sustainable direction, and it has called for significant change in the areas of education, research, organisation and dissemination. It is the highest representative body of UiO’s 28 000 students and consists of 36 elected student representatives. The assembly is governed by a team of five elected officials, who work full-time for one-year terms, two of whom sit on the University Board. In this short discussion, Christen Andreas Wroldsen talks about the need for a green university, the Student Parliament's vision for a sustainable UiO, as well as how we might get there. 

Christen Andreas Wroldsen is the president of the Student Parliament of the University of Oslo. From 2018 to 2019, he sat on the University Board and was the Student Parliament’s Officer of Environmental Policy. He holds an MSc in Public Management and Governance from the London School of Economics and has studied history and pedagogy at UiO.
