The Lausanne Sustainability Week is…

… taking place this year for the first time

… organised by a fresh new team full of ideas

… taking place on the campuses of UniL and EPFL

… filled with all sorts of different events

… a whole week in the beginning of March

Our story

Two girls, one dream. Descending like two prophets upon an Unipoly meeting, they shared their desire to have a sustainable week organised in Lausanne.

Two weeks afterwards, 16 motivated students gathered and a volcano of ideas sprung up from this collaboration.

Several meetings later and with some additional members, the tasks were well distributed with project heads and assistants for each of them. A real team was born, whose watchwords were motivation, enthusiasm and mutual aid.

As the days go by, the Sustainability Week is taking shape, with its outline becoming clearer and clearer, thanks to the fantastic students from UniL and EPFL and their strong team spirit.
