The Communication Team is responsible for making our work at SSC known to students and staff at ETH. This means designing posters, creating Insta posts, writing a regular newsletter, keeping the website up to date... Being visible and attractive online and on campus is crucial. We aim to make sustainability a core value at ETH and encourage good green habits in everyday routines.
If you have skills and interest in this area, we’d love to welcome you to the team! Get in touch with email@example.com (Ümmi Armagan).
Hello! I’m Ümmi, a soon to be chemist graduate (hopefully). When I’m not huddled over a table questioning why I have to do quantum mechanics (I just wanted to make things explode) you can find me (still huddled over my table) satisfying my curiosity with some bioinformatics. Other than that, my moral compass urges me to spread sustainability, social justice and similar ideals! Also I REALLY enjoy cooking some vegan comfort food for the people around me :D
What we call the Coordination Team is essentially our vice-president. S*he is responsible for keeping SSC running smoothly, i.e. scheduling board meetings, taking care of administrative duties and organizing internal social events, such as the Vegan Summer Barbeque or the SSC Retreat every semester.

Hi! I’m Luna and I am in the second year of my master’s in physics. Before becoming vice-president, I was in the Development Team, and I still try to help out there when I can! The reason I’m involved in SSC is because I feel that I can try to change things on campus, while meeting people and having fun 😊 Apart from SSC, I also like climbing, reading & writing, playing music and helping out in the Norwegian Student Association.
The Development Team is the core engine of SSC when it comes to catalysing institutional change at ETH. Hot topics are chosen according to the interests of each team member. Currently, we emphasize flight reduction, divestment and food. We work closely with the official office ETH Sustainability, are in frequent contact with various ETH bodies (e.g. ETH Mobility Platform, SGU, Environmental Commission...) and keep developing our network with research institutions (e.g. World Food Systems Center), ETH spinoffs (e.g. myclimate) and other Swiss student organizations (e.g. VSS-VSN).
Feeling inspired? Contact email@example.com (Maximilian Forberg).
My name is Max and I am in my second year of the Physics Master. I am trying hard to apply my Physicist skills in topics related to climate change, having done projects in solar cell development and atmospheric and climate science. After joining the SSC in September 2021, I have taken over the role of coordinating the development team, helping members to accomplish their projects, with the aim of actually changing things at ETHZ for the more sustainable. I enjoy networking and emailing people, and poking our members on Slack. In the time that remains besides studies and the SSC, you can find me playing in a theatre group and reading interesting articles about sustainability.
Our Events Team is an enthusiastic bunch who put their heads together every week to brainstorm and organize both social and intellectual events. Cooking classes, hiking trips, movie screenings, talks, book readings... the formats are diverse! The regular SSC beer is a favourite for newcomers – join us for a (non) alcoholic drink to share your thoughts and ideas or simply to meet new friends with the same green values.
Have a look at what is coming up this month or contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Ghjulia Sialelli).
My name is Ghjulia and I am a MSc student in Computer Science, focusing on applications of Machine Learning and Data Science to the climate crisis (check out this amazing paper if you’re interested in the topic!). I joined SSC a year ago, and am now coordinating the Events Team, where we organize talks, workshops, movie screenings, panel discussions, etc. I’m so proud to be part of this community, seeing the impact we get to have on ETH’s community! I am looking forward to seeing you at our events :)
Money, money, money... Yes, SSC also has a budget that wants to be taken care of. Currently, we are funded by VSETH. If, however, you have skills in managing external relations and want to increase our apéro budget, feel free to take on this role and reach out to potential sponsors!

My name is Blandine and I am working on my Master in Food Science. I joined SSC in 2018 and since then have been active in the Events group. I very much enjoy the atmosphere in the group and everybody's motivation to bring awareness about subjects that are close to our hearts. When I am not studying, or taking care of the SSC budget, I like to walk outside or create my clothes as sustainably as possible.
Salut! I'm Charlotte, a second year master student in Biomedical Engineering, originally from the other side of the renowned "Röstigraben"... From August 2021, I've been given the mission to motivate and gather people around sustainability. This task is close to my heart and it makes me happy and hopeful to see busy students commiting for meaningful projects. Other than that, I'm mostly getting lost somewhere in the mountains, complaining about plastic use, or thinking about what I will eat next...
