Session Outline

The Social Responsibility & Sustainability (SRS) Strategy at the University of Edinburgh includes a commitment to Living Labs.  This short presentation shares learnings from a recent project on the circular economy, along with practical examples of students working on projects linked with the operations of the University. 


EAUC-Scotland held their third conference on the 17th November 2015, sharing examples, ideas and opportunities for Colleges and Universities working to develop and promote sustainability within their institution.

The conference theme, A Shared Responsibility, highlighted that for effective change sustainability action is not only needed by estates teams, but also academic and support staff, senior management and students, and requires engagement with local and national partners and other further and higher education institutions.
