Student initiatives for sustainable development

Supporting programme 2017-2020


Project No 112

EPFL has been experimenting for 10 years with different approaches to sustainability on its campus, thanks to the Sustainable Campus unit created in 2007. Based on this experience, and with the aim of broadening the field of action, EPFL Sustainable Campus intends to create a support platform for student projects in the field of sustainability. This platform will be based on the one hand on the employment of a specialist in the development of sustainability projects and on the other hand on the creation of a project support fund fed by the CO2 fees collected by EPFL. Thanks to the strong involvement of academic, corporate and operational actors, this project will allow the consolidation of the Act for Change project, which was launched in 2015 and whose 4th edition ended in May 2017, and transform it into a sustainability laboratory under the name of ACT FOR CHANGE LAB. A special and highly visible space on the campus will be provided for the animation and communication of the platform.
