GREENUS Eco-Campus Project

A pilot ECO-CAMPUS Project in the framework of the GREENUS -GREEN waste management new edUcation System for recycling and environmental protection in Asia – funded by the Eramus+ CBHE Programme.

Eco-Campus is a pilot project based on a “learning-by-doing” approach and developed inside the campuses of the three Vietnamese Universities involved in the Erasmus+ GREENUS project including Hanoi University of Science and Technology (in the northern Vietnam), Can Tho University (in the Greet Mekong Delta) and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (in the southern Vietnam).

Currently, Vietnam universities are not applying sustainability waste management procedures, therefore GREENUS pilot project represents the starting point from which local environmental issues can be addressed, applying an eco-friendly vision in a higher educational venue and making it as model for replicability in Vietnam.

It foresees to: Install recycling bins with different colours indicating the different types of wastes; place simple posters showing why is important to separate waste and how to do it in the correct way; deliver waste management awareness programs; and deliver programs targeting teaching and research to minimize generation of hazardous wastes.
