This practically focused event drew on the collective expertise of the Civic University Network and the EAUC to explore the role of universities in developing and delivering appropriate responses to climate change.

Drawing on sector examples of both best practice and lessons learnt, this session will aim to help universities to identify connections and cross-overs with climate action strategies on campus, and their civic commitment.
