The goal of this first Innovation Challenge around decarbonization was to generate ideas to decrease the carbon footprint of our community and our UNIL & EPFL Campuses (ODD #13). These could be initiatives that directly affected the Campus or the behavior of the community, in its daily life. The 5 areas of action to contribute to the reduction of our footprint and on which projects could have an impact were : food, consumption, transportation, housing and public services.
