Universities have a great responsibility in promoting the necessary conditions for the challenges posed by sustainable development to be overcome.
In this context, the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) provides a global forum to support leading colleges, universities, and corporate campuses in the exchange of information, ideas, and best practices for achieving sustainable campus operations and integrating sustainability in research and teaching.
The 2019 edition of the ISCN will be held in June at the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil
More than 30 years ago our University initiated actions for reduction of social environmental impacts.
Due to its great territorial extension and diverse ecosystems, our campuses are challenging and enriching scenarios for sustainability actions.
Thanks to a joint effort of the entire university community, important results have been achieved. We figure as the most sustainable Latin America Institution in the Greenmetrics for Universities ranking… and thanks to a vast amount of preserved forest areas we occupy the first place in the Global ranking for Setting and Infrastructure.
Now we have to coordinate our strengths and step forward, to make our institution establish itself as an integrating hub of sustainable development for its surroundings and act as a national living lab for sustainability challenges.
Hosting the “Partnerships for Progress” 2019 ISCN is a great honor … and poses as an excellent opportunity for us to expand and consolidated a network of agents compromised with our common future.
The ISCN 2019 will be held from June 11 to 14, 2019, in São Paulo on the central campus of the University of São Paulo, as well in several other places according to the Preliminary Program.
We will be really glad to count on your participation
See you soon, at Sao Paulo … safe travels and do not forget to bring along your spirit of change!
