Abstract

In recent times, there is a growing recognition around the role universities can play for educating behavioural change in the modern "knowledge society". University activities have traditionally been understood as two missions: teaching and research. Policy makers have been keen to encourage all the other contributions of universities to society of the so-called ‘Third Mission’ including social engagement as one of the main pillar. The present paper refers to an experience to exploit new solutions for behavioural change. Outcomes of building energy simulations were deployed to foster the educative dimension of building managers and users as the basis for positive regenerating energy saving policies and measures at the campus scale in the path towards carbon emission reduction.
