BLOXHUB and Danish Cleantech Hub has announced Barnard College as the winner of their Build Back Circular call. Barnard College has been selected from a group of New York companies and organizations for their project of rethinking campus living and creating the first circular campus in the US.
The aim of the circular campus is to create solutions based on circular principles that can reduce costs and emissions and transform consumption patterns on campus for the benefit of students.
Through the Build Back Circular call, Barnard College will now in collaboration with a cross-disciplinary team of Nordic pioneers receive the support needed to identify a circular campus model. The aim is to develop ideas and concept solutions that can ultimately be implemented at other schools and campuses.
Lotte Breengaard, Program Director, BLOXHUB states
“It is wonderful to work with such an interesting and bold challenge. We really look forward to kickstarting the innovation process with Barnard College and selected BLOXHUB companies to identify a circular campus model that can become a best practice with higher education”.
