Context:
The AmbientALL (environment for all) is an initiative from the University of Lisbon with a goal to promote the best practices regarding environmental sustainability at the University.
Description:
AmbientALL evolved from the project "Green University" that started in 2010. The major challenges of AmbientALL are to share good practices in the university, create a space that reflects the life on a campus and its environmental concerns, involve academic community on issues of environmental sustainability and contribute to changing attitudes and behaviours.

After the successful first AmbientALL in May 2011, held at the Campus University, the 2. edition has been devoted to the creation of a working groups from different areas: culture, sustainability, communications and sport. In addition, this year the week-long event ( 22-28.10) was dedicated to sustainability - under the theme "ALL for Mobility".

The AmbientALL 2012 appeals for the adoption of sustainable practices especially on mobility, and energy efficiency, social responsibility, and healthy food consumption. The program activities included conferences, sports events and cultural activities, exhibitions, and many more.
