Our Physical World: Sustainability and the Environment

Higher Education institutions are increasingly developing research and implementing practices on their campuses related to Sustainability and the protection of the Environment.

From the use of geothermal systems and renewable energies, to the reduction of their carbon footprint or the creation of new green spaces and recycling practices, sustainability has become not only an important scholarly and research topic, but also a necessary practice in the development of college campuses. As an interdisciplinary methodology, sustainability research and its practical implementations address pressing issues related to the environment, as well as economics or social equity.

We welcome papers, presentations, and workshops that address the following questions or ones related to them:

  • What are best practices in Sustainability on college and university campuses?
  • What are some of the more recent, innovative techniques being used to conduct research on sustainable environmental practices?
  • To what degree are interdisciplinary approaches possible and effective?
  • How are various elements of Sustainability issues and solutions being integrated into the academic curriculum?
  • What kind of research is making connections between Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability?
  • What is being learned/achieved about sustainability practices through international collaborations?
