EAUC Annual Conference
Welcome to the EAUC Annual Conference Resource page
This year the Collaborations for Change Conference took place at Keele University on the 19th - 21st June 2018.
The conference theme, Collaborations for Change, Global Goals for Tomorrow's Education, Today, recognised the critical role academics, researchers, students, sustainability leaders and support staff in universities and colleges have to play in finding and implementing a solution to climate change, and realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with partnership working.
Inspired by United Nations Sustainable Development Goal no.17, a successful approach to leading change for sustainability requires a new commitment to partnership and cooperation. These must be inclusive partnerships, built upon principles and values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the centre. They are needed across every part of our learning institutions and between us and wider local, national and international stakeholders.
In the context of significant political and sectoral challenge, change and opportunity, this conference repositions sustainability as a foundation to build positive new cross-sector collaborations for change.
The Conference will cover every area of campus life, from the post-16 education sector. Delegates include those responsible for sustainability leadership, environmental management, governance, estates and facilities, finance and procurement as well as teachers, lecturers, curriculum designers, post-graduate researchers and of course students.
The Campus Conference will take place alongside the Academic Conference - building a unique and powerful cross discipline and sector opportunity to achieve the Global Goals and research and education fit for tomorrow.
