Sustainable travel

Study abroad in a more eco-friendly way to respect the environment

Are you going on exchange through the “Swiss-European Mobility Programme”? EPFL Sustainability and the Student Exchange Office, with the support of Movetia, offer you a 30% discount on your round trip train ticket. You can find more information in this document (in French only).

This project is financially supported by Movetia. Movetia promotes exchange, mobility and cooperation within the fields of education, training and youth work – in Switzerland, Europe and worldwide. wwww.movetia.ch.


You would like to be respectful of the environment and study abroad in a sustainable way? The National Agency Movetia has prepared some tools which can guide you in your travel decision-making.

Furthermore, here is a map of Europe created by ETH Zürich and the SBB which enables you to compare the difference in terms of time and Co2 emissions between a trip by train and a trip by plane.
