UK universities have come under increasing pressure to improve their environmental track record, particularly from students and are increasingly looking at what they can do across their organisation to improve environmental sustainability.  According to a new report published by EAUC, Universities UK, Guild HE and the Association of Colleges, universities should declare a climate emergency and set challenging targets to reach net-zero emissions by 2030. Universities and colleges have a huge opportunity to play a role in facilitating a transition away from ecologically and economically unsustainable practices.

This event will explore the significant progress that UK universities and colleges have made in driving forward the sustainability agenda across learning, teaching, research, campus life and the wider local and global community.  Through a series of high-level keynotes and practical case studies, it explores how to embed sustainability into higher education.

Topics include optimising leadership; supporting students in sustainability initiatives, saving energy and water on campus and boosting partnerships locally and globally.  Delegates will get a comprehensive insight into key factors for success in achieving a sustainable higher education institution.
