9th UNICA GREEN Workshop


The 9th UNICA GREEN Workshop: "Sustainable lifestyles - What role can universities play?" will be hosted by the University of Lausanne, 6-8 March 2019, and will focus on promoting sustainable lifestyles within university campuses. 





The Workshop is mainly aimed at Sustainability/Environmental Coordinators and Vice-Rectors responsible for the implementation of institutional sustainability strategy from UNICA Member Universities and UNICA GREEN partner institutions.



The Workshop will focus on the topic of lifestyles and behavior change in order to promote more sustainable lifestyle. Through best practice exchanges and practical workshops, participants will learn more about this topic and about tools to improve to everyday practices. This will also be the opportunity to host the "Green your University Award" ceremony.



The Workshop will start on Wednesday, 6 March at 16:30 and will end on Friday, 8 March at 13:00 (the closing will be followed by a farewell lunch). 

The preliminary programme will be available early December.



UNICA GREEN seeks examples of good practice at UNICA member universities related to the Workshop's main theme.
