Office for a Sustainable Campus invited Dr. Ariane Koenig from Université du Luxembourg in 2017 and held “the Concept of Sustainable Campus and University Campus Assessment” course. Building of a sustainable society is a global challenge, as well as something that is realized with different methods and solutions depending on the natural or social conditions in respective regional communities. This course focuses on living space that respective regions have and relationship of that to university campuses that situate within the space. This course is held with the aim of getting people to understand multilaterally the social roles played by a campus, from the perspectives of environmental impact reduction, campus management for improving the quality of a space, interactions between students, faculty members and residents born within that space, and space design of living space that includes the campus and surrounding areas. We plan to invite Dr. Ariane Koenig from Université du Luxembourg and hold the course in 2018 as well.
