Green Gown Awards
The Green Gown Awards Ceremony took place on Monday 3 November 2014 at the stunning Whitworth Hall, The University of Manchester
The Green Gown Awards black-tie ceremony brings together the leaders, drivers and thinkers of sustainability initiatives within the tertiary education sector. Show your support for and get inspiration from the finalists by being a part of the most prestigious recognition of best practice within the education sector.
Now in their 10th year, the Green Gown Awards, sponsored by the CISCO and BT education partnership, recognise the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges across the UK. With sustainability moving up the agenda, the Awards have become established as the most prestigious recognition of best practice within the tertiary education sector.
Share, learn and replicate! A showcase of inspiring sustainability initiatives
As the ethos of the Awards is to ensure the lessons and examples of good practice are shared within the sector and beyond, we are delighted to announce that many of the 2013 finalists, highly commended and winning entries have all worked hard to provide over 70 case studies and short videos on their projects to share with you on the Sustainability Exchange. We thank HEFCE for supporting the dissemination.
