This presentation on 'The Green Vented Salon' was given as part of a morning workshop on Living Labs at the EAUC-Scotland Conference 2015 by Christina Laing, Head of Department - Academy of Hair, Beauty, Sport & Fitness, Fife College.

Session Outline

The presentation considers how even the hairdressing sector, one of the worst offenders in the fight for change towards a more sustainable world, can make changes for the better, and how changes then cause a ‘ripple effect’ across all those who visit a salon, either in college or on the High Street.


EAUC-Scotland held their third conference on the 17th November 2015, sharing examples, ideas and opportunities for Colleges and Universities working to develop and promote sustainability within their institution.

The conference theme, A Shared Responsibility, highlighted that for effective change sustainability action is not only needed by estates teams, but also academic and support staff, senior management and students, and requires engagement with local and national partners and other further and higher education institutions.
