From the Environmental Unit of the OSSMA we are working to ensure that university activity is increasingly more respectful of the environment and that the university community has solutions to reduce the environmental impact associated with teaching, research and administrative activity.
To achieve this, we encourage actions and projects to promote environmental protection (mobility, consumption, waste generation, etc.), we advise the different bodies and administrative units of the University and the entire university community, and we design and teach courses in different formats.
Our activities are carried out in accordance with the UB’s sustainability policy and action program, which can be consulted in the section on The OSSMA at the UB, and advise the governing bodies in its definition. You can find the actions we are carrying out related to the sustainable development objectives in the section The OSSMA and the ODS.
In the quarterfinals we overcame the Polytechnic University of Valencia, and we qualified for the semifinals, where we cross with the Università degli Studi di Torino.
Starting on September 2020 till November 2020, we published through our Twitter account a series of eco-tips on the carbon footprint of the University of Barcelona, with proposals to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We think it is a good idea to summarize them in this post.
