ISCN 2016: Working Group 2 Debrief

  1. 1. Goals of our discussion 1. Top ways sustainable development/enhancing well-being / or new technologies could get integrated into your institution’s sustainability strategy in the next 1-3 years (depending on where your institution is in your sustainability journey)? 2. What are the top two areas you can make progress related to our two areas of focus? 3. How can you leverage this Working Group and its members to advance holistic sustainable development objectives and integrate them into your campus planning efforts? ISCN 2016
  2. 2. Hot topics for 2016 Identification of relevant topics from last year’ discussion and from WG2 online survey ISCN 2016
  3. 3. WG2 presenters! Keynote: Mark Dooris, University of Central Lancashire, College of Health & Wellbeing Health Promoting & Sustainable Universities Abstracts: Takayuki Nakamura, National Institute of Technology, Fukushima College Showcases in Japan on holistic campus strategic planning Giacomo Pettenati, University of Torino Social Networking between the University and the City Henrich Johanna, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Sustainability at Technische Universität Darmstadt: A contribution towards implementing the turnaround in energy policy. ISCN 2016
  4. 4. Key Issues Discussed 1. Strong interest to move beyond climate and energy/GHG reduction 2. How could WG2/Institutions better align not just their vision but their goals focused on enhancing well-being and true sustainable development 3. Community partnerships and intersections: neighborhood scale, research and impact 4. Establish a business case for a healthy, sustainable campus 5. Interest to connect more than once per year on these critical topics and approaches 6. Connection points to ISCN mission and other WG’s ISCN 2016
  5. 5. Tables breakdown discussion TABLE 1 THE EVOLUTION OF CAMPUS-WIDE STRATEGIC PLANNING Strategies for integrating holistic sustainability. Next challenges and topics: enhancing well-being. How to translate research into practice, use campus as testbed, and linkages to research. What is our role? What do we need to catalyze this transformation? ISCN 2016

  7. 7. Goals for 2016-2017 1. Webinar Series with examples of institutions who are establishing strategies and metrics to integrate sustainable development goals into their holistic (campus) planning efforts. i. Global models, including Health promoting universities ii. Working Group 2 Institutions examples 2. Survey WG2 members: i. Key areas of focus: in an effort to facilitate best practice sharing, gap filling and to better leverage expertise and enable knowledge transfer ii. Sustainable Development Goals & Metrics and Accountability 3. Survey “co=production” partners & faculty and senior leadership participation ISCN 2016
  8. 8. Tables breakdown discussion TABLE 2 APPLICATIONS OF PHYSICAL SOLUTIONS AND TECHNOLOGIES New technologies and innovative systems can impact sustainability at universities--lifestyles (energy transition, mobility changing, etc). ISCN 2016
  9. 9. TABLE 2 APPLICATIONS OF PHYSICAL SOLUTIONS AND TECHNOLOGIES campus-wide applications of: architectural solutions and green and blue technologies (water, waste), energy transition solutions, smart technologies (apps, sensors) What have we not thought of that relates to the use of smart technologies? Most of the time it is not a matter of having in place advanced or smart technologies, but how to make the most efficient use of those. We have to make sure that people are involved in the process (co-design of services and not top-down delivery), and informed about services. It is about CREATING CULTURE, an EDUCATIONAL PROCESS. ISCN 2016
  10. 10. TABLE 2 APPLICATIONS OF PHYSICAL SOLUTIONS AND TECHNOLOGIES campus-wide applications of: architectural solutions and green and blue technologies (water, waste), energy transition solutions, smart technologies (apps, sensors) Top ways new technologies could get integrated into sustainability at your institutions in the next 1-3 years, depending on where your institution is in your sustainability journey / your institution's evolution of sustainability? 1. Investigating how we can make use of smart technologies to drive behavioral change towards more sustainable lifestyles 2. Use smart technologies to promote a better use and access to existing services and facilities (e.g. booking teleconferencing facilities, mobility services like shuttles and shuttle routes, booking e-vehicles). 3. Testing technologies (in partnership with industry) to sense the community, foster collaboration and gain information and feedback about behaviors in an automated way, without bothering too much people (as it happens with surveys), thus supporting place-making ISCN 2016
  11. 11. TABLE 2 APPLICATIONS OF PHYSICAL SOLUTIONS AND TECHNOLOGIES campus-wide applications of: architectural solutions and green and blue technologies (water, waste), energy transition solutions, smart technologies (apps, sensors) What are the top two areas you can make progress on: Participation and co-design in 1. Energy and Environmental Management: efficient use of hard infrastructure (grids, waste, water) 2. Mobility: smart apps for improving sustainable mobility modalities and behaviors ISCN 2016
  12. 12. Goals for 2016-2017 1) Sharing of case-study applications about ◦ hard infrastructure (energy, mobility, environment) ◦ soft infrastructure (smart technologies) … with a focus on people behavior and place-making 2) Discussing future agenda ISCN 2016
