ÖzU has several applications to restrict its carbon footprint including the  use of wind power and solar panels on all the non-green roofs, as well as a  trigeneration system for heating and cooling. It has recently started using a  web-based carbon footprint calculator and carbon management software  that provides the capacity to measure, track, report and manage its carbon  footprints based on the guidelines of “The Greenhouse Gas Protocol”

Özyegin calculates Scope One and Two Emissions; emissions intensity and  emissions reductions, using 2018 as the base year. ÖzU carbon emission  calculation shows 6.316 tonnes of Co2 for the year 2022 with a 0,931  tonnes per person Co2 calculation.

2. “Capture the Interaction 2022  – High School Students Digital  Photography Competition”  

ÖzÜ Communication Design’s 6th annual “Capture the Interaction” photo  competition’s theme was “Climate.”

What will the world be like in 2050? How will the climate crisis affect our  world?

Regarding these questions, Communication and Design Department  students produce short documentaries making use of visualization skills  such as animation, stop-motion and drawing for an interactive climate  map in the light of climate crisis data. At COD 301 Design Studio III course,  students produce many projects focusing on UN SDG’s.
