If you missed the Green Gown Awards Ceremony you can watch it here.

The Winners of the UK and Ireland Green Gown Awards, held in association with UKRI, were revealed at a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 24th March.

This year, our Finalists, represent over 850,000 students and 130,000 staff and they are leading the way with their commitment to the global sustainability agenda and proving the value that universities and colleges bring to the economy and society even in the most challenging times. Find out more about our Finalists here.

We Need Your Help

A strong ethos of the Green Gown Awards is that they are free for institutions to enter. Due to the pandemic we have extended the Awards programme to allow institutions more time to take part and we will be holding a virtual Awards Ceremony.

We are making the Awards Ceremony free to attend but we do ask for a suggested fee of £25 per person to help us to continue running the Green Gown Awards - you can make this donation here. If you are unable to use the donation site, please contact us for an invoice here

The main source of income we receive to run the Green Gown Awards programme comes from the Awards Ceremony. Whilst we will not incur costs from a venue, we still have costs to run the Awards programme and host a virtual Awards Ceremony. We truly appreciate any donation you can make, no matter how small.

All donations will go towards the Green Gown Awards programme. We thank you for your support so we can continue to celebrate sustainability excellence in higher and further education.

Book your place for the Virtual Ceremony here. An Awards Ceremony link will be sent out and also available from our website closer to the event.
