Green Gown Awards 2014 Winners announced!

4th November 2014

The sustainability adventure continues!

Over 360 sustainability leaders were on the edge of their seats at The University of Manchester’s stunning Whitworth Hall, as author and TV presenter Simon Reeve announced the winners of this year’s Green Gown Awards. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the awards ceremony was the biggest and best yet with 15 Winners, 25 Highly Commended and it also saw the crowning of its 100th winner!

You can also view the list of 2014 winners, highly commended and all finalists on the EAUC website. We'll soon be adding some photographs from the evening here and on Twitter so you can see our winners celebrating in style!

The Winners’ Brochure - which explores the journeys all these institutions have taken - is now available online. We encourage you to delve into this rich resource of sustainability best practice and hope that you draw some inspiration and are able to replicate an initiative within your own institution. We encourage the dissemination of good practice so all the 2014 Green Gown winners, highly commended entries and finalists have been asked to provide a case study and a short video on their projects. These will be available from the Sustainability Exchange in early 2015. We'll also be running 'exchange' webinars too to encourage further engagement and to enable you to ask questions!

The dissemination of these best practices is supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
