We are pleased to announce the following GUPES Members are announced as Finalists for the GUPES Green Gown Awards:
The winners will be announced at the GUPES Green Gown Awards Ceremony at MIT, Boston on 13th September 2016.
The GUPES Green Gown Awards is a joint initiative supported by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC),that expands the Green Gown Awards further across the globe with an emphasis on profiling and learning from the Southern Hemisphere. This exciting partnership with the Global Universities Partnership on Environment and Sustainability (GUPES) will put universities and colleges as leaders in sustainability as well as being able to continue their learning from global leaders. The GUPES Green Gown Awards were open to GUPES Members across 6 regions (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, North America and West Asia). The GUPES Green Gown Award Winner from each of the regions will automatically be entered into the International Green Gown Awards contest.
Iain Patton, CEO, EAUC said:
“All around the world universities are beacons of hope for a more sustainable future. The GUPES Green Gown Awards recognise and celebrate the powerful contribution of university staff and students and most importantly let us learn and benefit from their excellence”.
