The UPF-BSM celebrates World Environmental Day with a Program of Environmental Sustainability:

The UPF Barcelona School of Management joins the celebration of World Environment Day on June 5th. organizing a Program of Environmental Sustainability: a series of activities that aim to strengthen the school's commitment to Planetary Wellbeing by actively involving our community.

The main purpose of this initiative is to give a voice to students, alumni and faculty in order to support and encourage the generation of new ideas that contribute to a more sustainable future. The scheduled activities seek to enhance the transfer of knowledge in this area, from UPF-BSM to society, giving visibility to the school’s broad talent ecosystem with expertise and experience in sustainability.

At the same time, it is intended that this Sustainability Program be the starting point of a network of people formed by different agents of the school, with interest and involvement in this field, which generates debate and networking throughout the year.
