This full day conference will look at some of the more controversial and challenging issues facing sustainability professionals within Further and Higher Education today.
This conference will consider the purpose of universities and colleges during a climate emergency and in the pursuit of a more sustainable world, We will also take a close look at some of the Elephants in the Room, with sessions currently being considered including setting meaningful carbon reduction targets, addressing academic travel, getting a handle on procurement emissions, making plastic-free pledges, carbon offsetting and supporting those with climate anxiety. The Conference will be tackling some of the thorniest issues facing our sector and features a range of workshop sessions, plenaries and panel discussions so there is a wide range of topics and sessions to choose from.
The Conference Website will be kept updated with updates to the agenda and other essential information.
The Green Gown Awards will be taking place the same evening at Glasgow Science Centre, and we would be delighted if you were able to join us for the evening too!
