ISCN Sustainable Campus Charter

Charter thumbnail

The ISCN Sustainable Campus Charter 2018 reflects the guiding principles of the ISCN, that is, that organizations of research and higher education have a unique role to play in developing the technologies, strategies, citizens, and leaders required for a more sustainable future.

Since the global sustainability landscape has changed significantly since 2009, an update to our guiding document was imperative in order to continue to evolve as a network. It now also reflects major international developments such as the Paris Climate Accord and the Sustainable Development Goals. Over the last year, we worked collectively as a network and broadly engaged membership in the development of the Charter. We received feedback through surveys and in-person sessions from member institutions in over 27 countries.

The 2018 Charter outlines a common vision, that ISCN members will use their shared capacity, passion, and intellectual capital to re-envision the future and take meaningful action to contribute to sustainable development.
