Green behaviours at UniBg

Sustainable mobility
Living lab

UniBg promotes sustainable mobility through various initiatives:

  • Public transport agreement: thanks to the agreements with the main public transport companies in the area, we offer our students reduced prices for tickets.
  • Electric bikes: we started an experiment in 2019 to allow UniBg teachers and staff to use pedal-assisted bicycles.
  • Living lab and urban experiments: thanks to the institution of the University Mobility Manager, we host numerous events with the university community and citizens to stimulate and implement ideas of sustainable mobility. Among these, in 2019 we set up the experimental shuttle between the Dalmine and Città Bassa offices in Bergamo, the guerrilla wayfinding to stimulate walking between the offices and others.

Our university also adheres, through an agreement signed between Crui (The Conference of Italian University Rectors), Associazione Marevivo and Conisma (The National Interuniversity Consortium for Marine Sciences), to the campaign #StopSingleUsePlastic.

The agreement has the objective of favouring the elimination of single use plastic from universities, for example through the distribution of customized water bottles or the installation of coffee dispensers with paper cups and the option ‘no glass’ but also to raise awareness and educate on environmental protection.  

It is an agreement which reflects the legislative proposal of the European Strategy on plastic which, if adopted, from 2021 will ban the sale of single use plastic items.
