Annual Conference 2015
THE sustainability event of the year for the UK tertiary education sector
We are delighted to announce that the 2015 Annual Conference will take place at the University of Leeds on 23 - 25 March 2015.
The University of Leeds takes its responsibility for social, environmental, economic and cultural impacts very seriously. It does this by integrating sustainability in student education, research, innovation and operations.
They’ve recently launched a sustainability strategy in order to achieve these aims across the institution. The strategy focuses on four themes: 'Embedding sustainability through collaboration', 'Building knowledge and capacity', 'Being a positive partner in society' and 'Making the most of resources'. With the launch of the new strategy, they're looking to ensure that the University of Leeds has an overall positive impact on the local and global community.
"Our aim is to become a University with a reputation for outstanding performance on sustainability; a University that challenges the status quo and is renowned for its open, welcoming environment.” Alan Langlands, Vice-Chancellor.
The campus, located next to the city centre, is a living lab for sustainability and has features such as the Sustainable Garden where students and staff can help grow and pick produce, rainwater harvesting systems for teaching and research, wildflower meadows, beehives and more. We regularly hold monthly forums on sustainability, as well as events and lectures to engage staff and students with the agenda.
The University of Leeds is proud be hosting the 2015 EAUC Conference, and look forward to welcoming colleagues across the sector to our campus to both celebrate sustainability and to inspire collaboration.
