In October 2022, the University of Lausanne randomly selected 60 individuals to form the participative assembly. It's objective was to propose a series of ambitious and transformative measures in order to bring the impact of UNIL’s activities within the ecological boundaries of the planet, while addressing its social mission.

After a year of work, the participative assembly submitted a final report to the Rectorate, with 28 major thematic objectives. They propose specific, often measurable targets with a set timeframe along with 146 action plans on how to get it done.

The results

The work of the Assembly shows that a fair and sustainable future is possible for all.
