The Campus Sustainability Team is looking for a person, entity or activity, which serves as a good example to others, takes concrete action or in some other way significantly brings Aalto University and its campus closer to reaching its sustainable development goals. Leave your suggestion - even small actions matter!

Campus Sustainability Champion is now chosen for the sixth time. In 2021 the winner was the campus' linden alleys.

This year's theme of the competition is I love carbon neutral campus. The winning concept could relate to teaching, education, research or art, or could be for example a new initiative towards carbon neutral campus. The winner will get a small prize and a lot of fame and good visibility as a promoter of campus sustainability.

The winner will be announced at ACRE's event ACRE day on 13.10.2022. The event is part of the national Energy Saving Week, which starts in the beginning of October. You are warmly welcome to join ACRE day to learn more about campus development, ACRE's work and enjoy good refreshments at Rakentajanaukio 4.

Leave your own proposal via this link before 23.9.2022.

All suggestions are welcome!
