A healthy and sustainable campus
"Promoting good health leads the university to achieve excellence in research and teaching, improving its public image, the university profile, the welfare of students and services staff and their lives”.
A committed university
The Healthy and Sustainable Campus (Campus SIS) project consists of two plans: the Healthy Campus plan and the Sustainable Campus plan. Both are aims at everyone who works and studies at the university. There are 70 activities with a high degree of transversality to improve the health of the university community, promoting environments and habits for a healthy lifestyle and attaining a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly university.
The Healthy Campus is inspired in the principles and values of the UAB, the recommendations of the World Health Organisation and the proposal for action of the Catalan Healthy University Network which the UAB has belonged to since 2010. Improving the health of the university community and promoting environments and habits for a healthy lifestyle are our objectives.
The history of the Sustainable Campus goes back to the UAB sustainability action plans that the university has been implementing since 2002 as a continuation of Agenda 21 which began in 1999. Its reference is the UAB Sustainability Plan 2013-2017 which includes sector plans for areas such as mobility, energy and waste. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly university are our objectives and our mission.
