  6. 6. Case Study Description• Methods / Approachi. Campus as a Living Laboratory (Evans 2011).ii. Provide a conducive and sustainable system for behavioral changes using the 4E approaches (Enable, Encourage, Engage , Exemplify) (Jackson 2005).iii. LCCF (Low Carbon City Framework) & Assessment to monitor GHG emission reduction & a model of Low Carbon City (2012 onwards).• Stakeholders InvolvementTo be part of the national environment initiatives and support the GHG target reduction40% by 2020 (Tenth Malaysian Plan).• Private partnership : Private Solid Waste Management Concessionaire for Southern Region of Malaysia for Recycling.ii. Public Partnership : ad-hoc community sustainable initiatives.iii. Government partnership : Department of Environment, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water. 2012 Symposium | Power of Partnership

  17. 17. the Way Forward• Lessons Learned : Providing the sustainable working environment requires more than motivating active involvement of the staff in Sustainable Campus initiatives. The challenge is to integrate the initiatives into their day-to-day work and life and the art of building the Sustainable Culture in our society. The successful implementation of university’s academic program could be affected by inadequate facilities (quality and quantity).• Key Questions : How can we integrate the existing Sustainable Campus Initiatives with the students’ academic activities? The challenge is to bridge the gap between the operation part of the campus and the academia / students’ activities. How to prioritize campus development with a financial and time frame constraint?• Future Actions : Strengthening our capacity building that cover the academia, non- academic staff and the student in order to implement the sustainability programs in solving real campus issues. Future campus development through private partnership and initiatives. 2012 Symposium | Power of Partnership
