Welcome to KTH Royal Institute of technology, June 11-13

Welcome to KTH


Higher Education Institutions (HEI's) have a unique role and responsibility for the future and for driving the development of a sustainable society. HEI’s are charged with the task of fostering sustainability in the leaders of tomorrow, developing solutions and methods to address a sustainable future and ensuring that we contribute knowledge to society. HEI’s must also ensure that our everyday operations and practices are consistent with a sustainable future and we work to holistically integrate sustainability into mission of the university and our daily tasks.


The aim of the 2018 ISCN Conference is to emphasise the current and future role of Higher Education Institutions for sustainable development. This includes education, research, collaboration and operations and facilities.

This year we are taking a new approach to curating content for the conference –we will both curate sessions and crowdsource your ideas to provide the opportunity for your projects to be highlighted. Through active participation and engagement more ISCN members and guests will contribute to the sharing of knowledge, culture, models and methods to further advance our commitment to the development of sustainability. The benefits of sharing experiences will build and expand relationships and networks of experts within ISCN and encourage continuing exchanges throughout the year.
