How will BREXIT impact the sustainability sector in tertiary education? Are there areas we need to take a view on as an organisation or should we be promoting potential eventualities to members? This webinar has looked at the opportunities for members and given them a chance to have their say and hear from a panel of experts on the topic. 

Why should I be interested? 

At this stage in government negotiations, it would be hard to have a definitive position, but if members want to see the EAUC take an active interest and potentially lobby on specific issues along with other organisations during the next 18 months, we need to hear from you.
