The Power of Partnerships
Our 6th annual event was co-hosted by the International Sustainable Campus Network and the University of Oregon, in Eugene, OR.
The 2012 Symposium focused on the importance of expanding sustainability initiatives beyond traditional campus boundaries to incorporate local and regional efforts. Colleges and universities have been forging powerful partnerships with local government, the corporate sector, and non-profits to tackle common challenges, accelerate technology transfer, and promote knowledge exchange. This year's ISCN Symposium presented concrete examples and methods of how to successfully foster partnerships, and featured in-depth working sessions, great networking opportunities, and the ISCN Sustainable Campus Excellence Award ceremony.
