UniLaSalle's mission is to train tomorrow's decision-makers, but it also means acting now, because the ecological and societal transformation is not only a matter for the next generation but also for the generations already in place.
UniLaSalle is launching its ecological and societal transformation strategy (DD-TES) and setting an ambitious course to implement its transformation project.
Our training universes, decisive for the transformation; the expectations of our students, employees, graduates and partners, strong; the climate emergency, a reality: the Uni4Change strategy aims to formalize our commitment to these decisive challenges, which we have been carrying for 30 years.
Mobilizing around 5 priority issues
UniLaSalle's vocation is to appropriate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in order to contribute to them.
Through the nature of the training courses it offers and the research work it carries out, as well as the heritage of its Lasallian commitment, its contributions to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, can be grouped around five priority issues:
On these issues, UniLaSalle, its employees and its students must be able to convey messages of transformation, but also be able to propose innovative solutions in order to meet the challenges posed by these issues on a local scale, within a territory, as well as on a more global scale.
At UniLaSalle, we consider that we have a role to play, a responsibility to act now on these issues that will enable us to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in 2015 set the 2030 Agenda for Development. It is an international reference framework for all states and stakeholders to enable each and every organization to mobilize for these social, economic and environmental challenges.
Acting for ecological and societal transformation through 5 commitments
Uni4Change is also a methodology, 5 strong commitments setting the framework for our ambition, in which each and every one of us has the means to invest and contribute so that UniLaSalle can position itself as an inspiring and demonstrative school in terms of ecological and societal transformation.
- Promoting an ecological and societal transformation in all our activities and in our territories;
- Develop responsible and informed decision-makers;
- Provide concrete responses to the Sustainable Development Goals;
- Manage our campuses for a positive environmental impact;
- Committed to the development of our stakeholders
A commitment and ambition driven by students and employees
UniLaSalle mobilizes and is mobilized with its students and employees to resolve the challenges of ecological and societal transformation.
The involvement of the student associations, in particular thanks to the creation of the role of Sustainable Development referent, has for many years enabled the emergence of mobilizing dynamics through the organization of events and the implementation of committed and unifying projects.
As proof of its commitment, the school has held the DD&RS label since 2020 at the group level, consecrating the commitments and actions carried out in favor of ecological and societal transformation.
