ANUgreen Wins International Sustainable Campus Network Award!

Everyone in my office is thrilled because we were notified last week that our campus environmental management program is the winner of the inaugural International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) Excellence Awards!

There were two categories and the ANUgreen Campus Environment and Sustainability Program was selected as the winner of the Impact category which rewards excellence in engaging the various stakeholders at a university in campus sustainability.

The ISCN selection committee stated, “Out of many applications received, it was the opinion of the jury that this project was an outstanding example of how the principles of sustainability and the objectives of the International Sustainable Campus Network can be realized.” The ANU initiative was chosen by the judges for demonstrating how campus development and management can be used to create impact for research, teaching and campus community involvement.

My colleague Su is currently in Lausanne, Switzerland to accept the award.

In case you are interested, our final round submission was a PowerPoint presentation outlining ANUgreen's achievements and it can be found here in pdf format. You'll even find a photo or two of me hidden in it.

Go team!
