Project Title: Moving IT Sligo towards a world class green campus – analysis of potential value and how it could be achieved

Supervisor: Noel Connaughton

Funding Body: IT Sligo President’s Bursary Awards

Description of the project

The overall aim of the project is to review the environmental aspects of IT Sligo and benchmark the college with best international practice, particularly in relation to the adoption of a “green campus”.  It is expected that the study outcomes will include a set of practical recommendations in relation to how IT Sligo should address its environmental aspects over the medium term.  An essential element of the study will be to address the practicalities of IT Sligo becoming a “green campus” using a number of appropriate criteria, including environmental, educational, financial and sustainability criteria.
