In the global pursuit of sustainability, academic institutions are transforming profoundly—redefining their role as dynamic hubs of innovation. The imperative for circular economy innovations is underscored by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s report, presenting compelling scientific data that accentuates the pressing need for change on a global scale. The report highlights that transitioning to a circular economy by 2030 can yield a net economic benefit of $4.5 trillion and promises substantial reductions in carbon emissions and waste. In this landscape of urgency, academic institutions, with their wealth of resources and diverse communities, are positioned to become living labs for sustainability initiatives. Ashoka University stands at the forefront of this movement with LiveGreen@Ashoka—a university-wide sustainability endeavour led by students and staff. It is a tangible manifestation of the university’s commitment to transforming its campus into a living lab for circular economy innovations and sustainable practices, serving as a model for other academic institutions.

The initiative’s mission was to create a strong connection within the Ashoka community and inspire everyone to adopt sustainable choices on campus. It envisioned a campus where every action contributed to a greener and more sustainable future, nurturing sustainability from within. Our commitment to inclusivity supports bottom-up initiatives and cross-departmental collaboration, promoting sustainability practices, raising awareness, and encouraging meaningful behavioural changes within the Ashoka community.

The three-pronged approach of LiveGreen@Ashoka integrates green technology interventions, behavioural changes, and operational interventions, making sustainability a tangible and integral part of campus life. The initiative empowers the Ashoka community to adopt green technologies, implement behavioural changes, and actively participate in operational interventions that promote sustainability.
