The acquisition of sustainability skills (cds) is based on voluntary activities, aimed at all Ca' Foscari students of any level and involves the provision of 1 extra-curricular credit.

The course can be therefore freely chosen by students, since it concerns transversal knowledge with respect to the curriculum, the activities can be carried out by students of each year of the degree course.
