As a not-for-profit initiative, we seek sponsorship funds to secure the long term future of the Awards. We invite organisations to provide financial support to develop the Green Gown Awards in return for sharing their sustainability knowledge and brand exposure.
Applications are now open for the Green Gown Awards in the UK and Ireland, as well as Australasia and French speaking Europe and Canada.
Since 2004, the Green Gown Awards have been recognising the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges across the UK.
Working on sustainability projects in your institution is common practice these days but how do you inspire and motivate your team, management and students to do more? By applying for an Award, you open up new opportunities.
The key benefits of applying:
All categories are open to any tertiary education establishment – including all post-16 educational institutions such as colleges, universities and learning and skills institutions. Specific categories are also aimed at student applications and 3rd party applications (companies working with institutions).
Iain Patton, CEO, Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC), said: “The Green Gown Awards UK and Ireland show society what is possible when you bring together students, academics, managers, businesses and community groups. We all want a better quality of life and the innovation and creativity going on in universities and colleges is leading the way to solving many problems in society.”
Leanne Denby, President of Australasian Campuses towards Sustainability (ACTS), said “I'm continually inspired by the work of the sector and in particular by those who have been recognised through the Green Gown awards. Every year, the quality of the initiatives is outstanding, and indicative of the many ways in which the sector is contributing to a more sustainable society.”
Applications for UK and Ireland close on 7 June.
Applications for French-speaking Europe and Canada close 15 July.
Applications for Australasia close 21 June.
