Although the Sustainability Exchange was originally funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), there is a wealth of information available on this information portal for those working on sustainability in Wales whether it is in higher or further education. It is a place for colleagues in different institutions and organisations to share their sustainability experiences via an active news feed, events diary, best practice guides, tool kits, reports, research, webinars and videos.

The EAUC is committed to driving this innovative information portal forward - making it relevant to the specific challenges faced by staff at institutions wherever they are in the country.

As a result of both education and the environment being devolved in Wales, universities and colleges find themselves in unique circumstances with different expectations placed upon them compared with the rest of the UK. To assist with this and to support tertiary education across Wales, we are now looking to create new Welsh Sustainability Exchange Partners to provide you with the resources and guidance you need.

These new and exciting relationships are designed to put sustainability at the forefront of tertiary education in Wales, and to provide institutions and their staff with the tools they need to achieve it. Although there are Welsh specific resources available on the Sustainability Exchange, we want there to be many more. This is why we will continue to work hard to promote sustainability in tertiary education throughout Wales and why we are increasing our Welsh Partners and resources all the time.
