Sustainable development can be defined as development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. How this is realized in higher education institutions? What have been done already and what could be done to promote sustainability?

The aim of the Developing Sustainable Campus projects is to find out the present state of sustainable development in TAMK and map all the positive things already carried out. DSC – Digital Media is one of those projects, to be carried out in Summer 2017.
