em logo 2With its long-term ownership, active management and residential development, sustainability has been a theme in Einar Mattsson's business for more than 80 years. As Stockholm's largest private owner of rental housing and with a generational perspective on our property ownership, it is natural to invest in energy efficient real estate. We were early to adopt a passive house standard as a minimum level in our production and have built houses with both zero energy and plus energy performance. In the research area at the KTH campus, we have planned for a plus energy rate where we take the next steps regarding technology, optimized climate scale and energy consumption.

In Siena you heard about KTH-Live-In Lab, a testbed for sustainable housing, now is your chance to experience the lab first hand. On Monday June 11, KTH Live-In Lab will open their unique apartments exclusively to ISCN 2018 participants. All participants will receive a tour and learn how these dynamic and flexible apartments will be used for research and development to accelerate innovation in the construction and real-estate sectors using Cleantech / Construction technology.

  • Jonas Anund Vogel, director of KTH Live-In Lab and a PhD student at KTH will share his research on obstacles to the implementation of new technology in connection with the production and renovation of housing.

This is the opportunity to choose an area of interest and dive into detail. 

Topics and sessions:

1) Building, Culture, Wellbeing

Venue: Undervisningshuset, room U21

  • Session Chair: Sarah Brylinsky, Sustainability Communications & Integration Manager, Cornell University
  • Speakers:
    • Richard Boyd, ARUP: “Servicing the circular economy: establishing the cost and carbon case for adopting circular economy principles in MEP systems for higher education buildings”

2) Developing strategic city – university partnerships for advancing sustainability outcomes

Venue: Undervisningshuset, room U31

Cities are facing rapid population growth and also increasing environmental challenges from threats such as climate change. Universities are long-term residences within these cities and can play a critical role in helping advance progress on complex city-sustainability issues; however, the dominant paradigm for city-university partnerships fails to fully leverage the potential impact of student engagement, research and convening capacities that exist within the university.

This session focuses on approaches for developing high impact city-university partnerships that can produce tangible outcomes for city practitioners while also producing benefits to student and faculty scholarship. The session begins with a short presentation on an overarching framework for high impact city-university sustainability partnerships and three illustrative case studies that speak to different partnership contexts.  The rest of the session will consist of facilitated small group work where participants will have the opportunity to discuss their specific city-university context and work to develop specific strategies to expand and deepen their partnerships.

This workshop is co-convened by the University of British Columbia’s Sustainability Initiative and Portland State University’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions.


3) Educating for sustainability – Exploring competency-based approaches to teaching sustainability education

Venue: Undervisningshuset, room U51

  • Facilitators:
    • Davis Bookhart, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (lead facilitator)
    • Saman Khan, Western Michigan University: “Sustainability in higher education: Instructor's perspective on Learning Outcomes of Sustainability focused courses in higher education institute
    • Göran Finnveden, KTH
    • Claudia Schmitt, Universität Hamburg, “Interactive Workshop: Sustainability seen from a multilingual perspective“

This workshop is intended to explore new ways of developing, testing, and integrating core sustainability ideas, competencies, skills, and approaches in coursework to help strengthen the understanding of sustainability outside of traditional content-based learning strategies. The workshop will explore:

  • How to focus on sustainability aptitudes, competencies, and skill-building as pathways for teaching sustainability education
  • Whether this approach can help better assess levels of sustainability literacy and development of meaningful learning outcomes
  • What kinds of issues transcend cultural, geographic, and language barriers, and how to find common ground
  • How to better assess these competencies / skill-building approaches in the context of career development and preparing students for the needs of the 21st century workforce
The format will be a combination of short presentations for background, participatory discussions, breakout group tasks, and then reconvene for reflection. 


4) Network for Innovation (2-part session) - Strategic Networking for Sustainability: Insights from Research and Practice

Venue: Undervisningshuset, room U41

  • Facilitators:
    • Katrin RischProgram Manager ‘University Alliance for Sustainability’, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
    • Andreas Wanke, Head, Unit for Sustainability and Energy Management, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
    • Daniel Lang, Research project ‘Sustainability at Higher Education Institutions: develop – network – report’, Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany
    • Judith Kahle, Research project ‘Sustainability at Higher Education Institutions: develop – network – report’, Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany

Higher education institutions (HEIs) increasingly discern their role as important societal actors to address sustainability problems. They do so in regional and international networks. Establishing and managing such partnerships and benefitting from them require significant investment of resources. Therefore it is worth learning from practical experience.

This session provides insights from research and practice on how networks, linking HEIs, can help to jointly utilize already existing expertise and to foster sustainability innovation with regional and international partners as well as at the home institution. We present findings gained from two case studies of networks. Based on these we engage participants in an interactive session discussing their experiences and expectations as well as measures to utilize the strategic advantages of HEI-networks at their home institution.

5) Living Lab  -  Campus as Living Lab Co-Design Workshop

Venue: Undervisningshuset, room U1

A Next Generation approach to engaging the Campus as a ‘Living Lab’ has emerged that catalyzes applied research and informal learning on common sustainability challenges. After the 2017 ISCN Vancouver Conference, several ISCN members have developed a Campus as Living Lab Framework.  We will use this framework as a starting place for discussion and exploration of how to scale up our efforts across our global landscape of campuses.

The workshop is designed for colleagues at all stages of launching and running living labs on and around their campuses.   In the workshop we will touch upon topics such as:

  • Living lab design for impact and innovation
  • Developing a value proposition for Living Labs on your campus
  • Campus data acquisition; tracking and analysis and managing risk;
  • Educational and research outcomes;
  • Solution design, applicability, scalability and culture.

Please join us for a dynamic dialogue. Bring your own experiences and challenges to the table to advance your Living Lab objectives on your campus and join us in developing a network of Living Lab projects and measured impacts!

Note: You may receive some preparatory reading material prior to the workshop
