Description/achievement of initiative

The University of Valencia has included sustainability as an essential part of its strategy to promote sustainable development initiatives in all areas of its activity, to achieve healthier living conditions, a more responsible use of resources and to adapt the institution to future scenarios. To reach this objective, the University has developed a scheme called Sustainable Campus (Campus Sostenible), focusing on three main areas:

1. EDUCATION AND RESEARCH FOR HEALTH AND SUSTAINABILITY

Generate coordination between educational and research policies, encouraging the promotion of awareness in the university community to establish a relationship between educational and research policies for health and sustainability.

2. SUSTAINABLE AND HEALTHY CAMPUS

The University wants to minimize the negative environmental impact of its activities and at the same time maximize economic, social and environmental values, and meet the requirements of the university community to achieve a sustainable and healthy campus.

3. SOCIAL COMMITMENT AND PARTICIPATION

It aims to increase the knowledge about the social impact of the University and its activities, both internal and external, through measures of social commitment and participation.

Implementation methodologies
