The EAUC is the sustainability champion for universities and colleges in the UK. Run by members, for its members, the EAUC seeks to drive sustainability to the heart of further and higher education. We have a membership of over 200 university, college and learning and skills providers in the UK. Being Member-led, we deliver Member services and resources that continually add value and offer exclusive access to information, ideas and news from many of the projects we're involved in.
We develop and deliver Member services and resources that inspire and assist sustainability professionals in their day to day jobs as well as campaign for paradigm and policy change by individuals, institutions and governments.
People are the key to and core of our work. For them, we maintain networks of over 4,500 sustainability professionals ready to engage in dialogue. We disseminate information and resources via newsletters, websites and events and lead the way by project managing ground-breaking sustainability projects that reach out to all quadrants of the sector and bring about tangible change.
To meet the need for more specialist learning and information sharing, we seek out and launch a range of communities of practice to encourage focused and efficient networking.
The Sustainability Exchange is one of the many pioneering projects delivered by the EAUC. We are proud to offer the sector and our Members this ground-breaking new portal which will support those working within it on a whole new level. For EAUC Members, they can access all the benefits of Membership and all that the portal offers, all in one place!
