Download Calendar Event

This virtual evidence gathering event is the first of 5 sessions from the Climate Commission.

The focus of this event is Mobilising the Further and Higher Education voice for influence and impact.

We invite members of the Climate Commission Council, Expert Witnesses and Observers to attend this virtual event. Other interested parties are also welcome to attend.

The Climate Commission has identified five areas that the sector needs focused support on to ensure there is a clear and feasible pathway to reach targets. Other related areas, such as Scope 1 and 2 emissions, are already well resourced for the sector and it is felt that focus is not required. The top five priorities the Climate Commission will focus on and develop enablers for are:

  1. Mobilising the Further and Higher Education voice for influence and impact
  2. Research and innovation– the funding and scope of research and innovation and maximising its impact
  3. Measuring and Reporting - Scope 1, 2 & 3 – profiling work underway, developing sector understanding of Scope 3 emissions, and supporting the sector to make significant progress in addressing these
  4. Deep adaptation – including governance, risk, mitigation and adaptation for the future of our campuses and operations
  5. Education and the student experience – curriculum development and the climate emergency
