International Summer School on Sustainable University Campuses Turin, Castello del Valentino 14 - 18 September, 2015 www.politoward.org/news


A forum to talk about university-based issues in various research fields toward the post-carbon resilient city. Resilience: the ability of a complex system to recover and adapt to shifts or changes. Our society is undergoing profound shifts and changes today – we have seen them affect industries as diverse as music, publishing and transportation. Yet universities and academia continue to operate according to entrenched archaic models. Economic growth from the 1980s until 2008 transformed academia itself into a commodity system, in which not only education but also our social and cultural reality responds to the same political and economic logic. Thus the following: What could be a new urban model to navigate and lead a resilient university campus in the future? What is the role of the human factor vs ICT in shaping up resilience in the urban environment? Which are the actions to be set and developed to improve the user awareness on sustainability issues? Which are principled examples of real estate, waste, energy, land use, food, materials, transportation, water and community management within a university campus?These and other research questions will be discussed in the summer school days within the following three sessions: Session I: Research and knowledge transfer, gathering topics on the University’s third mission, e.g. adding value through partnerships, fulfilling a valuable mandate, stimulating the economy with spin-offs, influencing a sustainable future, building community resilience, etc. Session II: Society and outreach, exploring ways of engaging with the public, industry and society, interacting with the interested stakeholders, informing government support, enrich and connect with the urban context, etc. Session III: Campus and environment, proposing the ultimate strategies for reducing campus emissions, optimising buildings and operations, conserving energy, redirecting waste, water and food management, promoting more sustainable campus lifestyles, responsible purchasing, ICT enabling social innovations, innovating a green mobility, etc. The goal of the common reflections out of these summer school days should be that the rise of the resilience paradigm coupled with the shared sustainability-efforts in each case studies will help to develop a broader understanding of the systems nature of planning, governing, and design, while also driving greater interdisciplinary approaches and scholarship to foster the cities we want, starting from the pieces of it we know better: university campuses.


The workshops and the summer school outputs The politoward workshop will focus on research and design for the resilient university campus. New modes of sharing information, spaces of learning, applied work and living labs will break down the doors of the classroom to define the university of the 21st century, one that is ecologically, socially and methodologically resilient without renouncing to the sustainability. It’s time to rethink the revolutionary potential of the possible use of technology and networks, both analogue and digital, to create institutions serving personal, creative, and autonomous interaction, respecting the availability of resources of all the other systems connected to the micro-urban dimension of the campus. Research themes will include open access and knowledge creation, information technologies, education economies, campus configuration, the future classroom, and urban integration. Expectations are entirely open, but the final deliverables of the workshops shall be a list of indicators for each analysed sub-topic coming from the different backgrounds and case studies. Leveraging tools and knowledge from their diverse papers and expertise, summer school attendees may design a set of criteria, shared priorities and visions for a sustainable and resilient university campus, translating them into a framework of indicators. Temporal longevity and multidimensional resilience (ecological, social, methodological) will be of fundamental importance, but crucial would be to address the non-normative systems approach where cities are viewed as open systems connected to the rest of the world in many ways. Suggested subtopics for emerging issues and therefore indicators to enucleate from the three sessions could be: - Urban Integration: many dimensions of the campus-city relationship, including transportation, ecology, economics, arts and culture, can drive the two resources: the academic population and the public/private/academic triangle in developing, implementing and sustaining complex and resilient urban systems. - Economic shift: We must think in terms of relevance rather than efficiency and economic growth, and this includes retaining knowledge in the area, valorization of labour and how to prepare students to translate their intellectual and aesthetic work into effective contributions to their communities, aware of all the others communities that could be affected by their choices. - Politics of academia: How can we measure the students involvement in the management of their university, and maybe the one of their children? Which can be the role of the students and professors to include a political thinking inside the academia? - Creativity, identity and culture: is the campus a place where students and teachers understand why it’s important to respond to the current cultural inputs, and then, are there examples of works on how to design a proper response? - Learning by doing: is university finding a disposition for accepting change, failure, and trial and error? Interpersonal and spatial interaction will be of fundamental importance to be evaluated in terms of community resilience building.
