Even when bidding for the Winter Universiade 2021, one focus was on the topics of sustainability and legacy.

The major winter sports event should be carried out with as little impact on the environment as possible and with positive and lasting effects on the economy, society and Swiss sport. This objective has shaped the vision and mission and was specified in more detail in the Sustainability Charter.

Top-class sport and academic studies

The legacy in terms of sport will focus on the objective of further improving the conditions for combining top-class sport and academic studies in Switzerland.

Innovation projects

Innovative projects build a bridge between the worlds of science, technology and sport.

Sport development projects

Major sporting events can have a lasting effect on the development of sport at different levels.

School Projects

Numerous schools will thematise the Winter Universiade 2021 before and during the multi-sport event.
