The Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design has set out to become the first net carbon neutral higher education institution in Hungary by 2030.

From 2022, MOME will organise all its activities in alignment with the principles of sustainability in an effort to achieve complete net carbon neutrality by 2030. The green transition will affect every area of the university’s operations from improving the efficiency of energy consumption and waste reduction to introducing paperless administrative processes.

MOME Zero also includes active involvement in off-campus climate protection projects, the launch of research & development projects supporting sustainable operations, and related tender activities.

MOME Forest

Coming together to achieve total carbon neutrality for our university.

MOME's task is clear: in the years ahead, we need to reduce our energy consumption, increase the share of renewable energy sources in our operations, and, among other things, eliminate paper and food waste. We know that even if we do everything right, part of MOME's emissions will still remain with us. Therefore:

1.step

The university is launching its own forest planting action that is unique to the country. Joining forces with three major Hungarian national parks, we will develop new forests over an area of 50 hectares to neutralise MOME’s emissions in the future. 

2.step

MOME's community works in collaboration with forest engineers and environmental protection professionals to plant and manage the forests. University citizens master the basics of ecological awareness that are essential in the 21st century during fieldwork.

3.step

As part of the MOME Zero activities, our students can gain tangible knowledge about the interaction between nature and man, and the principles underlying sustainable design through university education.

A marriage of art and nature, the reading cabin built according to a design by MOME’s architecture students can also be used as a bivouac shelter.   

Brunch & Knowledge is a monthly event series organised by the Innovation Center of MOME, and gives insight into a vast array of topics, ranging from volunteering and charity to change management. The last online session featured a presentation by ecological engineer Dr. Nadina Galle, who coined the term “Internet of Nature”, a framework of technological solutions to build better cities for both people and nature.
