Symposium on Sustainability in University Campuses
December 10 - December 12
The theme of the 2nd Symposium on Sustainability in University Campuses is “Transforming
Campuses Towards Sustainable Development”. The gathering aims to demonstrate the role of campuses as
platforms for transformative social learning and research, and explore the means via which university
campuses can be made more sustainable.
The aims of the “2nd Symposium on Sustainability in University Campuses” are as follows: to provide universities all round the world with an opportunity to display and present their works on campus greening and sustainable campus development; to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of research, teaching and projects on campus greening and design, especially successful initiatives and good practice; to discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the topic of sustainable development in campus design and operations; and to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.
Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, papers submitted to the event and accepted after peer-review will be published in the Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education. This is part of the award-winning “World Sustainability Series”, published by Springer. The books in the series are fully peer-reviewed, and officially count as publication outputs for promotion and tenure purposes.
