           and photovoltaic energy; putting into practice actions aimed
           at saving electricity and fossil fuels.
        2. Water management: saving drinking water and water for
           watering purposes, using grey water self-purifications
           lagoons, and restoring the campus water cisterns.
        3. Waste management: by selective collecting and recycling
        4. Direct protection of the natural surroundings and the
           historical heritage of the University
        5. Putting into action environmental initiatives for people:
           increasing pedestrian spaces and green areas; and

           university community.
