The GUPES Green Gown Awards are a joint initiative supported by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) that expands the Green Gown Awards further across the globe through the Global Universities Partnership on Environment and Sustainability (GUPES) network of over 800 universities and colleges. This exciting partnership with GUPES recognises universities and colleges as leaders in sustainability as well as being able to continue their learning from global leaders.

The GUPES Green Gown Awards are open to GUPES Members across 6 regions. Applications are equally welcomed from institutions. Each GUPES region has a pre-selected category that is most appropriate for their region taking into consideration initiatives that are taking place within institutions within their region:

1: Africa: Continuous Improvement: Institutional Change
2: Asia and the Pacific: Community Engagement
3: Europe: Student Engagement
4: Latin America and the Caribbean: Community Engagement
5: North America: Student Engagement
6: West Asia: Continuous Improvement: Institutional Change

The GUPES Green Gown Award Winner from each of the 6 regions will automatically be entered into the International Green Gown Awards contest.

“All around the world universities are beacons of hope for a more sustainable future. The GUPES Green Gown Awards recognise and celebrate the powerful contribution of university staff and students and most importantly let us learn and benefit from their excellence”.

Iain Patton, CEO, EAUC 

“Universities are a rich source of innovation, commitment and passion for a sustainable future of people and planet in harmony. The GUPES Green Gown Awards showcase this and provide a source of inspiration and can-do spirit that the UN Environment Programme applauds and celebrates.”
