International Green Gown Awards 2024 - Open

The 2024 International Green Gown Awards are now open!
The International Green Gown Awards, in partnership with Allianz Global Investors, and supported by UN Environment Programme, recognise exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges around the globe. Celebrating our 10th year, applications for 2024 are now open and we invite universities and colleges, worldwide, to put your most innovative and influential sustainability work forward for an International Green Gown Award. 

Diane Mak, Head of Impact Strategy at Allianz Global Investors, says: "We are very pleased to be partnering with the International Green Gown Awards, as we see the huge value of empowering the next generation to innovate and collaborate, to help drive positive long-term impacts for the world we live in. Education is a critical component in enabling individuals to make informed decisions in their journey towards generating positive change, and it has been inspiring to see the many impactful projects that the International Green Gown Awards has already helped to catalyse around the world. We encourage colleges and universities to make use of this platform and join this year’s Awards, so that the ideas of the next generation can continue to inspire and motivate action around the world for a more sustainable future."  

Speaking about the launch, Charlotte Bonner, CEO of EAUC and secretariat of the Awards says: "The education sector has a critical role in contributing to our international sustainability goals. This contribution includes preparing learners for their futures, embedding sustainability using ‘whole organisation approaches’, supporting a just transition, taking climate and biodiversity action and shaping society for the better through research and innovation. This is increasingly being recognised around the globe – the role of education now being part of the UN COP agenda is a clear signal of this. With the launch of this year's awards, we look forward to continuing to provide a platform for what excellence looks like across our sector.”
