Act for the planet

Acting to protect the climate and biodiversity

Our goal is to be consistent and exemplary on our campuses, in all our activities and our territories, to contribute to the change of behaviour and practices.

Climate change and the loss of biodiversity are two major, interdependent ecological crises linked to our production and consumption methods, which threaten the functioning of ecosystems. KEDGE has acknowledged these challenges by placing the control of its environmental footprint (carbon, biodiversity and waste) at the heart of its agenda.

Though students' training remains its strongest lever for transformation, KEDGE also acts to encourage and accompany behavioural change.

The aim of this day is to guarantee a "common base" of knowledge concerning the causes and consequences of climate change, as well as the current and future impacts of climate change on the economic world and the companies' activities. The programme includes collective intelligence workshops such as the Climate Freskco and 2tonnes, which encourage active learning.
