In 2020 the Vice Chancellor, Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, put out a call to the UCT community to submit proposals for collaborative, cross disciplinary five-year research proposals that would help catalyse UCT’s intent to become a sustainable campus, which is a key pillar of UCT’s Vision 2030.

There were multiple respondents to this call, and the selection committee chose four proposals which were then combined into one larger project team to form what is called the “Khusela Ikamva” Sustainable Campus project.

The project sees the university using its campuses as living laboratories for collective innovation, to reduce its ecological footprint and make UCT, and by extension society more sustainable.
