U-MOB Video Contest
on accessibility and sustaible mobility in Italian Universities
New Deadline February 29th 2020
The increasing need to access University campuses creates strong mobility flows that have become one of the most compromised aspects of the sustainability (environmental, economic and social) of our Universities. With this in mind, local administrations and Universities are working on achieving a mobility model in line with the Sustainable Development Goals defined in the UN's 2030 Agenda.
In this framework, the European Commission, through its LIFE Program, funds the U-MOB Project, with the aim of promoting networking among universities to achieve more environmentally friendly, economically efficient and inclusive forms of mobility.
As part of this project, the University of Bergamo, with the sponsorship of the Network of Universities for Sustainable Development (RUS), promotes a video contest on accessibility and sustainable mobility in Italian universities. The aim of the competition is to spread the principles of sustainable mobility and give the university community the opportunity to contribute their vision, in a creative way, about the accessibility to the campuses and the resulting mobility.
Politecnico di Milano, partner of the European Project U-MOB Life, proposes to its academic community the participation to the video contest for the realization of a videoclip on accessibility and sustainable mobility at Polimi.
The theme will need to be addressed from the SDGs viewpoint, emphasising critical issues, advantages of the various means of transport, or possible solutions to reduce the environmental impacts. Everyone can take part in the contest (students, researchers, professors, postgraduates, technical and administrative staff), alone or in groups, by sending their videos before 29th February 2020 (new deadline).
The winners will be able to freely choose their prize among the ones in the catalogue, available on the contest official website.
The first U-MOB Video Contest on accessibility and and sustainable mobility, promoted last year among the Spanish Universities part of the U-Mob Life network, saw 15 Universities taking part in the competition. The winning videos are available here.
