Sustainable Campus Promoter System

As collaboration system with various departments is important for initiatives of Sustainable Campus Management Office, “Environmental Impact Reduction Promoters Meeting”(then) has been established and “Environmental Impact Reduction Promoters”(then) have been stationed at respective departments since 2011. Through this Council, initiatives have been driven forward, while exchanging opinions between various departments and Sustainable Campus Management Office. Initially, its main role was to exchange opinions on programs of Sustainable Campus Management Office, but with self assessment being implemented by our university using Assessment System for Sustainable Campus (ASSC) and workshops supporting revision of Campus Master Plan being carried out with Environmental Impact Reduction Promoters (then), it has become an important venue for communication since 2014.

SCSD

The Students Council for Sustainable Development in Hokkaido University (SCSD)

SCSD was established in April 2010.

Hokkaido University Team (8 members) that attended an international students conference hosted by Copenhagen University and Yale University as an associated event to COP 15 of December 2009 was asked to realize the ideas for bringing forth Sustainable Campus that were proposed in the conference at their own universities. SCSD was established as a student activity organization for realizing Sustainable Campus in our university, with conference attendee members playing the central roles. Its activities started with 26 members, made up from graduate students of Public Policy School and Graduate School of Environmental Science, as well as overseas students studying at Hokkaido University.

Recently SCSD has been hosting “Sustainable Campus Content” which provides financial supports to winners of Award of Excellence after examining projects proposed by students, as well as running “Candle Night in Hokkaido University” which is carried out at Sapporo campus around summer solstice.
