The Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) and Association of Colleges (AoC) delivered a one day Summit focusing on embedding sustainability into a college context.
The EAUC acknowledges the need for a more specialist focus for Further Education and in building on the highly successful 2014 AoC Sustainability Conference, we have come together to offer a unique Summit for College Principals, Senior Managers, Academics and Sustainability professionals from across the Further Education sector.
Taking place on 24 March at the University of Leeds, the Further Education Sustainability Summit 2015 presented an impressive line-up of speakers and workshops discussing, debating and showcasing sustainable development strategies and action within the Further Education sector.
Colleges have the potential to enhance industry performance through a sustainability focus. Operational efficiencies, development of products and services based on sustainability principles, and a workforce whose knowledge and skills are developed with a particular emphasis on sustainability will help strengthen the UK economy and improve its global competitiveness.
The Summit gave delegates an opportunity to learn about good practice examples, explore how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and English skills can be enhanced through a sustainability focus, maximise the potential of the college estate as a learning resource, develop regional projects and partnerships, and establish a successful sustainability strategy. Delegates also heard from industry on the response and the challenges faced in business.
The Summit took place alongside day 1 of the EAUC Annual Conference so you can attend all of the Further Education Sustainability Summit sessions or mix up your choices with the main Conference programme to tailor your experience to your own areas of interest.
We had special rates for EAUC and AoC Members to attend the one day Summit or the whole Conference. We hope you consider attending the whole Conference including the evening Gala Dinner so you get the full Conference experience.
