The Campus Planning and Management Systems Award will recognize projects or campus-wide initiatives that represent holistic approaches to campus sustainability planning. Campus plans and/or management systems should take into account best practices in large-scale deployment of sustainability technologies, practices and master planning and successful integration of sustainability into the culture, community and/or operations of a campus. Example projects may include, but are not limited to, strategic plans, climate action plans, integrating international standards, etc.
Successful projects will be those that show excellent achievements from the viewpoint of engaging the various stakeholders of campus sustainability in the planning process and those that include using the campus effectively as a living laboratory for sustainability related teaching and research activities.
Winning projects will demonstrate how sustainable campus planning and management can be used to positively impact the campus community, its research activities, the educational mission of the institution, and increase on- or off- campus community engagement.
