UNZA Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Simukanga has said the University of Zambia has re-branded itself strategically to be a 'green campus' starting From 2013.  Speaking when he officially launched the 'keep UNZA clean campaign' on 22nd February, 2013, Prof Simukanga said the sustainability emphasizes the point that cleanliness at unza should not just be a one-day activity but that it should be sustained into the future. He said the campaign is also contextualized within the African Union's New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) whose environmental initiative recognizes that a healthy environment through cleanliness is a pre-requisite for Africa’s Development. “The event we are witnessing today is set within wider policy frameworks beyond that of Zambia. As part of a global community, we are now living within the united nations decade of education for sustainable development, which runs from the year 2005 to 2014. The decade was designated in this manner in order to recognize that change towards a better quality of life through cleanliness starts with education and awareness raising,” he said. Zambians are alive to the reality that a campaign such as that of 'keep unza clean' should be more than just a slogan. The campaign must be a concrete reality for all of us - as individuals, managers, academic or non-academic staff, students as well as organizations and governments - in all our daily decisions and actions. The 'keep UNZA clean' campaign is an initiative by the School of Education which in the recent past has spearheaded various projects and made donations to Kalingalinga police post. The School also has a vibrant degree programme in environmental education meant to produce the needed human resource for various sectors, including for the Ministry of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education.
