EPFL Sustainability is committed to fostering education for sustainability at EPFL. We support the EPFL teaching community through the Teaching Sustainability Think Tank and events such as the Teaching Sustainability Workshop. We also support the development of education initiatives for sustainability at EPFL, such as the Climate and Sustainability Action Week (CSAW).
