Scotland Conference 2015

A Shared Responsibility

Tuesday 17th November 2015, University of Edinburgh

EAUC-Scotland held their third conference on the 17th November 2015, sharing examples, ideas and opportunities for Colleges and Universities working to develop and promote sustainability within their institution.

The conference theme, A Shared Responsibility, highlighted that for effective change sustainability action is not only needed by estates teams, but also academic and support staff, senior management and students, and requires engagement with local and national partners and other further and higher education institutions.

Programme

The 2015 EAUC-Scotland Conference examined the shared responsibilities and opportunities surrounding tertiary education sustainability at a range of scales.

Starting at the institution level, delegates had the opportunity to attend a range of workshops examining different aspects of employing a whole-institutional approach through case studies of projects happening in Scotland.

In the afternoon discussions considered responsibilities and opportunities on a national level, between tertiary education institutions and also key partners. 

The final plenary session considered the global level – what can we learn from the tertiary education sector in other countries, their sustainability priorities, and how they engage with other organisations on a local and national level?
