Events

The Sustainability Exchange brings together events from all over the sector and from our Partners and Sponsors into one place so you can search those most relevant for you. 

Also, a key part of the Sustainability Exchange is encouraging dialogue and sharing of ideas and approaches whether through resources, forums or other online methods. We do this with our 'exchanges' which are short, free, lunchtime webinars on a variety of interesting topics. Find out more about 'exchanges'.

If you can't find the event you need, contact us as the EAUC run a number of on-demand events to suit your needs. Find out more about EAUC events and webinars
