There are some of the departments that have an influential role within the institutions for tackling climate change, creating sustainability and engaging staff and students on these matters.
The guides aim to engage professional departments and sustainability teams with a view to fostering the further collaboration of these teams, embedding sustainability at a departmental and institutional level. They include an overview of professional-department and sustainability-team initiatives in UK Further and Higher Education institutions.
These guides were created in collaboration with colleagues from various departments to understand the barriers and successes of creating connections between sustainability and different professional departments.

Each guide can be used by either sustainability professionals or the departments to better understand the benefits of actively participating with your institutions sustainability work.
If you are looking for further support with engaging any of these professional departments such as training, facilitated meetings or workshops then get in touch with the EAUC-Scotland Team. Or if you have any other departments that you would be interested in exploring then we would like to hear from you!
