This workshop presentation is from Further Education Sustainability Summit which formed part of the EAUC's Annual Conference 2015 'Challenging Connections'. This Summit was developed in partnership with Association of Colleges (AoC). To find more presentations and resources from this Conference, search for EAUCConf15.

This workshop was presented by Quinn Runkle, NUS; Valerie Peterson, Sheffield College and Christina Donovan, Wigan and Leigh College.

Today’s graduates will play a critical role in solving the world’s greatest challenges. Colleges across the UK are beginning to develop green graduates who are truly prepared for a job in a low-carbon economy. This session will help delegates to articulate desired learner attributes around sustainability and social responsibility; examine strategies for fostering institutional change; and learn from case studies of colleges who are making progress in this area.

Delegates will leave with a stronger understanding of education for sustainable development and tangible next steps to implementing whole-institution change.
