Sustainability at Sant’Anna Institute
At Sant’Anna, Sustainability is not just a subject, it is a philosophy of life.
Our goal is to teach our students to live in most sustainable way possible through the implementation of small, but essential actions, such as:
- An organic garden on campus
- An introductory session on energy-saving methods (during the on-site orientation at the beginning of the semester)
- Recycling methods
- Use of public transport during fieldtrips and some internships
- Digital textbooks in courses
