We are delighted to share presentations on the theme of sustainability from our members: The University of Zurich, the University of Glasgow, the University of New South Wales (UNSW), and National University of Singapore (NUS)
Curious about science? Story of science and sustainability
'Science and Suitability' Science Lab UZH provides a modern and future oriented impression of natural sciences and promotes interdisciplinary skills through interactive and cross-disciplinary workshops.
The University of Glasgow and the Sustainability Agenda
The University of Glasgow’s climate change strategy comprises a route to net zero carbon emissions by 2035 as well as a strategy on how the university community as a whole aims to contribute towards the most pressing questions around sustainability, with a particular focus on the environment
UNSW’s journey to a carbon neutral energy supply
UNSW’s solar power purchase agreement will see its campus powered by 100% renewable electricity from 2020 – a first for an Australian university. Apart from photovoltaic solar energy, various additional steps have been taken on UNSW’s journey to net zero emissions. UNSW also spearheaded the creation of the recently launched International Universities Climate Alliance (IUCA).
Sustainability Policy and Implementation Strategy
The University of Zurich is committed to systematically expanding its contribution to local and global sustainability. In 2019, it adopted a Sustainability Policy and published its first Sustainability Report, based on the Sustainable Development Goals. (SDGs). Since, actions were taken in the fields of reporting, policy and strategy, teaching and research.
Sustainability at NUS
The first video focuses on NUS’ sustainability framework and how the university integrates sustainability into its core pillars of education, research, education, operations and engagement. The second video highlights SDE 4, Singapore’s first net zero energy purpose-built building as an exemplar for incorporating tropical climatic research and emerging building management technologies, as well as presenting the School of Design and Environment (SDE) students an experiential learning experience in human-centric building design, flexible spaces and health and wellness.
