[URBAN RESEARCH] GREEN CAMPUS INITIATIVE (KUSA / WKU)
[INITIATIVE] WKU GREEN CAMPUS
WKU Green Campus Initiative
Increase the number of green space on campus, improve biodiversity, and increase the carbon sequestration capacity of carbon sink, to create a harmonious coexistence with nature campus environment. Wenzhou-kean University's biodiversity conservation and care plan will include not only the campus, but also the mountain forests to the north, east and west, as well as adjacent parks and water surfaces to the southeast. Wenzhou-Kean University is committed to maintaining high-quality green space, water surface and woodland, and will explore international wildlife conservation and biodiversity certification.
The ecological open space on the campus of Wenzhou-Kean University will also help improve the health of faculty, students and community residents, which plays a leading role in green and low-carbon construction for surrounding communities to contribute to the green and low-carbon development of the region.

[2022.OCT.28] URBAN RESEARCH IDEA - GREEN/SUSTAINABLE CAMPUS ACTION RESEARCH / CASE STUDY
ISER (International Social Entrepreneurship Research) Colloquium members talked about next "Social Innovation" study on Oct. 26, 2022.

Definition of Social Innovation:
(OECD LEED, 2000): OECD (2011), Demand-side Innovation Policies, OECD Publishing, Paris, https://dx.doi.org/10.1787/9789264098886-en.
Social innovation seeks new answers to social problems by identifying and delivering new services
that improve the quality of life of individuals and communities, and identifying and implementing new labour-market integration processes, competencies, jobs and forms of participation as diverse elements that contribute to improving the position of individuals in the workforce.
Social innovations can therefore be seen as dealing with the welfare of individuals and communities, both as consumers and producers. The elements of this welfare are linked with their quality of life and activity. Wherever social innovations appear, they always bring about new references or processes.
Social innovation is distinct from economic innovation because it is not about introducing new types of production or exploiting new markets in themselves, but is about satisfying new needs not provided for by the market (even if markets intervene later) or creating new, more satisfactory ways of insertion in terms of giving people a place and a role in production.
OECD, Social Innovation Policy Framework in Croatia (2016): OECD (2016), Social Innovation Policy Framework for Croatia, http://dx.doi.org/www.oecd.org/south-east- europe/programme/Social_Innovation_Policy_Framework_Croatia.pdf.
Social innovation seeks to deliver impactful new solutions to meet societal needs, resulting in new social relationships (including beneficiaries) achieved through new products, processes and models.
