The ISCN is a global forum for leading universities, colleges, and corporate campuses to exchange information, ideas, thoughts, experiences, and best practices for achieving sustainable campus operations and integrating sustainability in research and teaching. The ISCN's purpose is to provide a platform where colleges and universities can focus on shaping the world of tomorrow. ISCN was founded in 2007 and held its previous conferences in Zurich, Lausanne, Shanghai, Gothenborg, Eugene and Singapore. For 2014 the event will take place in Cambridge, U.S.
The leadership of ISCN is warranted by several parties. Its strategic development, for instance, is guided by a Steering Committee, which includes representatives from five schools: EPF Lausanne, ETH Zurich, Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore, and the University of Hong Kong. The network's Secretariat is responsible for managing ISCN.
