Sustainability

Since 2010 Ca’ Foscari commits to sustainability through the programme Sustainable Ca' Foscari and in September 2014 the Sustainable Campus project was launched to promote and develop sustainable actions and projects in all the university seats.

Among the many initiatives and events, the Department of Economics promotes the Bookcrossing initiative in San Giobbe economic campus with a fix stand where anyone can give and take books free of charge, participating to a virtuous circle based on re-use of resources and knowledge sharing.

Furthermore, students can acquire Sustainability Competencies: voluntary based activities dedicated to economic, social or environmental sustainability. The student must discuss with the contact professor of the involved Department to identify an activity, such as courses, workshops, interviews, research..., and the nature of its final proposal. Once the activity carried out and the final proposal approved, the teacher will register 1 extracurrricular ECTS in the student’s plan of study.
