The UN's eleventh sustainable development goal (SDG-11) aims at creating sustainable cities and communities. Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and University of Twente (UT) alongside ECIU University support this goal and, wants to contribute to a more sustainable future. Climate change is one of the major challenges facing global society. Extreme weather, such as droughts and heavy rain, are expected to increase with climate change, and as recent events show, expose unforeseen vulnerabilities. ECIU University can contribute in (at least two) ways to realizing the SDG by firstly reducing its carbon footprint, and secondly by providing technological solutions that help increase resilience to climate and weather extremes.
Reducing the impact of climate change is a very important issue and one of the most discussed questions in politics and society. While climate change outpaces the current scientific understanding, new technology can offer opportunities to face the impact of climate change as well as contributing to making a more climate neutral world. ECIU University seeks for learners who take responsibility and shape a sustainable future with new mindsets, behaviours, ways of learning, thinking and working in support of new solutions, technologies and innovations. The big idea is to develop a climate neutral campus with innovative ideas and bold solutions and thereby, advance climate protection and reduce CO2 production. Develop a concept that enables your home university or any other university to have a climate neutral campus in the future. Get ready to make a start now. You can be a pioneer and help make a climate neutral campus.
