The SostA project

The general objective of the "SostA... verso un Ateneo sostenibile" project is to achieve environmental, economic and social responsibility at USI.

The specific objectives are:

  • to improve energy efficiency;
  • to introduce and strengthen sustainability criteria in daily management and purchasing;
  • to raise the awareness of the USI community;
  • to guide USI towards a sustainability model.

USI Sustainability and Environmental Impact Report (in Italian only) includes information on what has been done over the years, on the current sustainability started, and on those to come. Moreover, as part of the project, useful information is available concerning sustainability (waste management, energy consumption and emissions), mobility arrangements (Arcobaleno pass, PubliBike bike sharing service) and other aspects.


On the spot

After joining the Bikecoin project, USI participates in another project to make mobility of its community more sustainable: from Monday 20 September 2021, SMISTO, a project that provides parking spaces in Italian border areas for students and cross-border workers, starts! To have more information and join the initiative, you can consult the following flyers (in Italian only): SMISTO Volantino LuganoSMISTO Volantino Mendrisio, SMISTO Lista parcheggi.

USI has decided to join the Bikecoin (MobAlt) programme: from Monday 13 September 2021, employees will be able to compete and win prizes simply by using the bycicle for their home-work commutes (more information on Cycling to the University and earning "Bikecoin").
