In particular, the project introduces students to Goal 12, which focuses on sustainable consumption and production patterns and how to consume in a responsible manner.

As part of the project, all participating student unions organise events and training related to responsible consumption, dealing with, for instance, responsibility in the clothing and electronics industries. These will be held through September to November 2021 and in 2022. The events are organised together with Fairtrade and Pro Ethical Trade Finland.
