Matt Christensen, Global Head of Sustainable & Impact Investing at Allianz Global Investors, says:
“It’s encouraging to witness another successful year for the International Green Gown Awards since our partnership began last year, with very clear examples of ideas and projects from so many universities and colleges. We will continue to support and encourage more brilliant minds to innovate ground-breaking ideas, inspire each other, and motivate others to focus efforts on a more sustainable future.”
Charlotte Bonner, CEO, EAUC and Green Gown Awards Secretariat, says:
“We are delighted to announce our 2023 winners! Their stories demonstrate considerable impact showing how institutions are taking sustainability action, equipping learners for their futures and shaping society for the better. We can all take inspiration from their work to progress and accelerate sustainability action. Our winners of course demonstrate impactful, innovative practice and have provided an honest narrative about what’s worked well but also recognised the ‘bumps in the road’ and the lessons learned along the way. That takes bravery and confidence and humility. From India to Colombia to Malaysia and Canada and many more, our winners show how important it is for higher, further, and technical and vocational education and training institutions to tackle the climate and biodiversity crises. With such fantastic projects, we are already looking forward to hearing from many more institutions in 2024!”
