Founded by students in 2020, The BSL Sustainability Club’s (BSLSC) goal is to bring together the BSL community through discussion and collective intelligence on areas such as Economy, Society and the Environment. The BSLSC is actively engaged in local initiatives, partners with local universities, and hosts a variety of gatherings to discuss pressing issues in today’s world, providing insight and tips on how each of us can make small changes, which in turn, collectively, can make great societal differences. The students who have joined this club are believers that we, the people, must take action and bring policies to governments, rather than wait for the inverse. The BSLSC brings together like-minded people and encourages open dialogue to review, analyze, debunk and validate all sorts of information regarding sustainability and social reform activities. Their biggest successes to date include formal and informal events such as guest speaker events, panel discussions, and workshops. 

Featuring:
-> Sascha Nick their club advisor also a professor at BSL and EPFL

Academic Citizens’ Assembly

A disruptive way to empower learners, teachers, and researchers for the Swiss societal transition.

Starting this much-needed dialog of society, the Academic Citizens’ Assembly is an experiment to test a new governance model better suited to solving today’s challenges.

The EPFL-BSL annual Symposium on Societal Transition Pathways, first held in 2020, brings together a community of practitioners and scholars interested in the societal transition towards a more inclusive, more just society allowing universal human thriving within the limits of the biosphere. We are lobby-free, nor associated with or financed by any political organization, and strictly adhere to the scientific method. The material used in preparation of the Academic Citizen Assembly is prepared by the academic community and is scientifically sound and unbiased, hence the name of our project.
