Scotland Conference 2019 - The Elephants in the Room

26th Nov 2019 10:00 – 16:45

This full day conference will look at some of the more controversial and challenging issues facing sustainability professionals within Further and Higher Education today.  

The morning sessions will consider the purpose of universities and colleges during a climate emergency and in the pursuit of a more sustainable world, and consider some of the key actions you can take internally to map and engage with others about how your institution is doing so far and where you need to go next.

In the afternoon we will take a closer look at some of the 'elephants'. With sessions currently being considered including setting meaningful carbon reduction targets, addressing academic travel, getting a handle on procurement emissions, making plastic-free pledges, carbon offsetting and supporting those with climate anxiety, the Conference will be tackling some of the thorniest issues facing our sector. 

The Conference Website will be kept updated with updates to the agenda and other essential information.

The Green Gown Awards will be taking place the same evening at Glasgow Science Centre, and we would be delighted if you were able to join us for the evening too! More information on the Green Gown Awards is available here.
