The role of education is to be a foundation and driver for building a better and more sustainable future. Following the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, education institutions need to unite to deliver the UNESCO Education for Sustainable Development Global Action Plan. We all have a commitment to bring about change.
Working closely with our international partners, we aim to bring together resources from education institutions across the world. These partnerships provide us with the opportunities to radically increase the sharing of the Southern and Northern Hemispheres understanding on what sustainability means for an education institution.
Partnering with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Global Universities Partnership on Environment and Sustainability (GUPES) we bring together the latest news, resources and case studies across the world.
“Universities and colleges have to take the lead on a global scale to ensure our students have the skills and knowledge to ensure a social, economic and environmentally responsible future for us all,” Iain Patton, CEO, EAUC.
The Platform for Sustainability Performance in Education brings together organisations which have created sustainability assessment tools designed to support universities and colleges around the world.
Along with our sister organisations, AASHE (USA) and ACTS (Australasia), we are dedicated to sharing the knowledge and experience of education institutions. The International Green Gown Awards are testament to this, which brings together the good practice that is taking place globally and sharing this knowledge.
We encourage you to explore and get inspired.
