Step-Change for Sustainability was supported by headline sponsors Connected Energy.
The next few years are crucial in achieving Scotland’s ambition to end its contribution to climate change by 2045 whilst ensuring a Just and Fair Transition to net zero. Scotland's colleges and universities will play a significant role in meeting this goal. Taking a whole-institution approach, this conference addressed the challenges facing the sector and look at how we can move from piloting actions to embedding impact in key areas.
The conference brought together over 100 attendees, from a range of networks as well as every area of campus life, from the Further and Higher Education sector. Attendees included those responsible for environmental management, estates and facilities, teaching staff, as well as senior leaders and students.
With two plenary and panel discussion sessions, eight workshops and a buffet lunch in the exhibitor space, this conference provided a place to meet and have these much needed conversations. Whether you are interested in sustainable institutional supply chains, embedding Education for Sustainable Development in teaching, the policy and funding landscape or embedding adaptation within operations and planning, there's something for everyone at the EAUC-Scotland Conference.
