The TU Environmental Initiative is a group of TU Dresden students from all disciplines and semesters who are committed to the environment. A major focus of their work is in the area of environmental education. The aim is therefore to sensitise students to ecological issues during the course of their studies and to impart environmentally relevant knowledge. As part of the Studium generale, they regularly offer environmental ring lectures and organise information events or block seminars.

There are further different commissions (e.g. library, data processing, …) whose tasks depend on the respective area.
