Call for Papers: 2nd Symposium on Sustainability in University Campuses, Florence, Italy
10th-12th December 2018

It is widely known that matters related to sustainable development, albeit global in nature, are best handled at the local level. This line of thinking is particularly true to the higher education context, where the design and implementation of sustainability initiatives on campuses can demonstrate how a given university translates the principles of sustainable development into practice, at the institutional level.

Yet, despite the perceived need to discuss approaches and methods to make university campuses more sustainable, there is a paucity of specific events where a dialogue among sustainability academics and practitioners concerned with a) research, projects b) teaching and c) planning and infra-structure leading to campus greening takes place, so as to allow a transdisciplinary and crosssectoral exchange of ideas and experiences on the issues, matters and problems at hand.

It is against this background that the “2nd Symposium on Sustainability in University Campuses” (SSUC-2018) is being organised by the University of Florence, the Research and Transfer Centre “Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany), and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP). The University of Florence was founded
in 1321, is one of the most traditional universities in Europe, and has in excess of 60.000 students.
