The event’s topic “Moving Beyond the Ivory Tower: How do Science and Universities Contribute to the Sustainability Transformation?“ sparked lively discussions among all participants. Coming from different cultural and professional backgrounds, the participants shared their perspectives on the responsibility science and universities should adopt to contribute to the global sustainability discourse. With the conference the Alliance aims to contribute to spreading innovative ideas, interesting research and sustainable campus solutions across the globe and to spark extended dialogue between all stakeholders on campus and beyond.
