Higher education is an exciting and growing area for sustainability, with many opportunities to reduce impact through innovation and leadership. For this reason, top-tier universities from across the world have joined forces through the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN), to incorporate sustainability in their teaching, research, and campus operations.

 

Every year the ISCN conference brings together thought leaders, practitioners and change agents for a unique opportunity to exchange perspectives and form global partnerships in pursuit of sustainability. This year, KTH Royal Institute of Technology hosted the ISCN 2018 Conference, Sustainable Development: Acting with Purpose and welcomed registrants from 120 different universities and higher-education organizations.


Exceptional entries
One of the most anticipated events at ISCN 2018 was the tenth annual ISCN Sustainable Campus Excellence Award Ceremony on June 13th, 2018 at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. These awards recognize universities for exceptional sustainability efforts in campus planning, integration with academics, student leadership, and exemplary building projects.


Matthew Gardner, 2018 ISCN Jury Chair, claimed: “Once again, our Campus Excellence Award entries were exceptional, therefore making it a challenge to pick the winning candidates. Each project portrayed passion and creativity; this was an excellent group to judge.”


The winners of the 2018 ISCN Sustainable Campus Excellence Awards are:


• Building and Innovative Infrastructure Award: University of Copenhagen, Denmark
• Campus Planning and Management Systems Award: Stanford University, United States

• Innovative Collaboration Award: Freie Universität of Berlin, Germany

• Student Leadership Award: University of Cyprus, Cyprus

 

“It was an honor for us to award these great efforts and provide global recognition that show leadership in sustainability. The projects submitted this year were innovative, creative, and provided numerous examples of how we can further sustainability in higher education institutions.” said Zena Harris, the 2018 ISCN Executive Director.


The awards are open to any college or university worldwide that has developed outstanding planning, construction, or educational projects that promote sustainability on campus and in the surrounding community. Each year, an international panel of experts serves on the jury to review award applications and select the ISCN Award winners.

 

The Maersk Tower
The Maersk Tower is a state-of-the-art research building whose innovative architecture creates the optimum framework for world-class health research, making it a landmark in Copenhagen. It aims to contribute positively by linking the University of Copenhagen with the surrounding neighbourhoods and wider city.

 

Maersk Tower is designed by C.F. Møller Architects. The campus park is designed by SLA. The Danish Building and Property Agency is the client and owner of the building, on behalf of the Danish State. Maersk Tower was made possible by a generous donation from A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til almene Formaal (the A.P. Møller Foundation) and a special appropriation from the Folketing (Parliament).
