- Sustainable Cappadocia
- What You Can Do
Cappadocia University (KÜN) aims to develop novel approaches for the environmental and cultural heritage of the Cappadocia region supported by its natural and cultural sustainability policies, aided by the internal and external stakeholders. KÜN sustainability policies are designed in accordance with the KÜN Contribution to Society Objectives and Principles Policy Paper, as well as our mission, vision, and fundamental values.
KÜN prioritizes two main subjects in its sustainability policies. The first is the support of natural and cultural sustainability through educational and research activities. Educational programs at all levels include classes on environmental and cultural issues. The KÜN Scientific Research Projects Commission and the KÜN Scientific Research and Publication Ethics Commission provide additional support to the projects prioritizing sustainability.
Another subject which KÜN prioritizes in the context of sustainability relates to the protection of natural resources. KÜN follows comprehensive policies in energy, water, environment, and food issues, with an understanding of the nexus between them, and works with its stakeholders in activities aimed at minimizing any negative impacts of humans on natural and cultural life. To this end, KÜN takes the necessary measures and provides its internal and external stakeholders with the opportunity to contribute to and take an active part in sustainability efforts and initiatives.
