The survey was developed by the Sustainable Development Department on June 2020 and shared with all the community of the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University and the Green Energy Park.
The department has developped the assessment based on different surveys conducted by many universities. We have also compiled sustainability aspects at the university campus to highlight them in the survey.
Moreover, we added a question to collect emails of the interested students and staff to be part of the follow up survey.

The Literacy assessment survey was sent via email to all UM6P community (Academic staff, administrative staff, students) as the first edition of a sustainability assessement launched since the department creation in December 2019.

Although the response rate was less than targeted, 4,75% of UM6P students and 4,2% of UM6P staff allowed us to achieve a representative sample.


A brief summary of results from the cultural assessment:

The results have shown that more than 70% of the community is satisfied with the sustainable initiatives implemented at the campus. Their active participation in advancing sustainability with concrete projects had reached 60% where more than 80% of the projects are focused on waste recycling. Concerning the sustainable behaviors, a significant number of the representative sample is considerably aware of the individual best practices that should be done in a daily basis to save energy, reduce waste and promote eco responsible purchasing.
In conclusion, the survey has portrayed the efforts of the institution, the students and the staff in implementing sustainable actions, behaviors and values.
