Theme: Empowering Administrators for Climate Change Mitigation in HEIs: An Integrated Approach Through Digital Innovation and Community Engagement

Support services within HEIs are key to implementing the infrastructural, operational, and cultural shifts necessary to respond to climate change. As centers of education, research, and community leadership, HEIs have a unique responsibility and capacity to drive significant environmental change. This theme calls for a comprehensive approach, integrating digital technologies and community collaboration to reduce carbon footprints, enhance resilience, and promote environmental stewardship across the HEI sector.

The conference aims to highlight the essential role of support service administrators in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), particularly in public sectors with insights applicable to private institutions, in addressing the multifaceted challenges posed by climate change. By leveraging digital innovation and fostering robust community engagement, these administrators can lead effective strategies for climate change mitigation and adaptation, enhancing the sustainability of campus operations and the broader community

Key Focus Areas

Integrating Digital Technologies for Sustainability

Employing advanced digital tools and systems to streamline resource use, enhance energy efficiency, and foster a culture of sustainability. Initiatives can include implementing campus-wide energy management systems, virtualizing administrative processes to reduce paper use, and creating digital platforms for community engagement in sustainability efforts

Developing Sustainable Campus Infrastructure

Prioritizing sustainable design and maintenance practices in campus development projects to reduce environmental impact. This involves adopting renewable energy sources, green building certifications, and water conservation measures to create eco-friendly campuses.

Engaging Communities in Climate Change Initiatives

Building partnerships with local, national, and global communities to address climate change collaboratively. This includes organizing sustainability events, participating in environmental advocacy, and engaging students and staff in climate change research and action projects.

Promoting Sustainable Practices Through Policy

Formulating and enforcing policies that encourage sustainable behavior among the campus community. This might encompass incentives for using public transportation, recycling and waste reduction programs, and guidelines for environmentally responsible procurement

Advocacy and Leadership in Climate Change Education

Using the platform of HEIs to advocate for comprehensive climate change education and action. Sharing successful practices with other institutions, including private HEIs, and contributing to policy discussions on sustainability in education.
