- Student participation and consultation with faculty will be the core prerequisite of the project. The overarching activities, include but not limited to, discussion/dialogue-forum and action-platforms for campus wide energy conservation, energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, waste management, sustainable mobility, sustainable consumption and environment-friendly behavior. Partnership with businesses and NGOs would be the key axis around which this network will flourish.
- Encouraging sustainable, scalable, campus-led contribution towards the achievement of SDGs by leveraging the young minds and use of technologically and socially validated interventions would be the focus of the network.
- The SCCN will play a role of unique part of the knowledge and action platforms aimed at ‘achieving by performing’ and ‘meeting the goals by modeling the roles’. It brings together students and faculty to shape the minds and muscles of tomorrow’s leaders, business managers, entrepreneurs, academicians, researchers and civil society stewards to act locally and collaboratively.
First stage would constitute, understanding of the consumption pattern of energy in college campuses and provide energy efficient alternatives.
Second stage would be the water conservation, waste management, transport, clean and renewable energy, deployment of digital platforms, financial management and comparative study.
Allied activities: To form a network of the education campuses of schools, colleges, institutes and universities who have committed to make a tangible contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals ( SDGs) 2030.
Education for Sustainable Development - A set of protocols to students for development of Smart Grid Applications (e.g carbon footprint displays, analytics, etc) and thus develop a Smart City Technology Centre of Excellence in each campus. Hands on knowledge to students regarding energy efficient technology to encourage awareness and participation.
