Several actions and activities are on offer for students and staff to mark European Sustainable Development Week

A survey on eating habits to develop a more sustainable offering

Weekday lunches (of students and staff) account for 8% of Centrale Nantes' carbon footprint

Over the course of 4 weeks, 140 volunteers (100 students / 40 staff) with different eating habits will be able to assess their lunchtime habits through a quick online survey: what proportion of lunches are vegetarian? ready-made? home-made? with meat? on site? at the Crous? in disposable or reusable dishes?

The results will help Centrale Nantes and the Crous to adapt the catering provision via foodtrucks or university restaurants.

The survey is co-financed by the Crous and the CVEC.

Bicycle Challenge

At Centrale Nantes, 18% of students and staff use bicycles for their daily commute.
During the month of October, the Centrale Nantes BDS and the BDE's ecology team are organising a bicycle challenge for campus users. The goal? In one month, to cover as many kilometres as possible by bike, alone or in a team. Several prizes to be won.
In order to take part in the challenge with a fully operational bike, students and staff will be able to attend repair workshops on 30 September with the arrival of Vélocampus on campus.
