We are involved in UN Global Compact – the world's largest corporate responsibility initiative
The UN Global Compact is a corporate responsibility initiative that promotes ecological, social and economic responsibility in businesses and organisations. In the initiative, organisations commit to promoting favourable working conditions, human rights, environmental protection, anti-corruption, and a global economy that advocates sustainability and engagement.
LUT is involved in the initiative and supports its goals through research and education and by being a responsible employer.
LUT students and President Niinistö discuss climate change
President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö meets LUT students in an online event on 26 April 2021. The event is part of a virtual Kultaranta discussion tour, where President Niinistö will meet with university students.
"Environmental questions and their solutions are cross-cutting themes in nearly all technology and business studies, and therefore, the issue is highly topical and important to us", says Annina Pokki, Chair of the Board of the LUT Student Union.
Now is the time to seize the opportunity
The small virus has changed the media environment in a great deal. For journalists, it has been a time of extreme pressure to learn and understand and write timely coverage about the new unpredictable virus. On the other hand, during the past weeks and months, the role and importance of media has increased enormously for every individual and for the whole society.
That's why it is now time to start reflecting what has happened and what is going to happen in the media industry because of the COVID-19 pandemic, writes Associate Professor Päivi Maijanen from LUT School of Business and Management.
