International Spotlight Roundtables

The all new International Spotlight Roundtables offers members, and those in our network overseas, the opportunity to participate in lively, topical discussions that reflect upon the impact of EAUC's international programmes. The bi-monthly series features the latest case studies by SDG Accord signatories, as well as the prize-winning entries to the 2023 International Green Gown Awards, which are in association with Allianz Global Investors.

We hope the space provided by the series is beneficial to members exploring new concepts and ideas within education and sustainability, and can be an avenue for creating stronger connections with our global network.  These sessions will take place at 14:00 (UTC) every alternate Wednesday.
