  • EUA webinar series "Greening in European higher education institutions"

    Save the date for the upcoming EUA webinar series "Greening in European higher education institutions". The three-part event will take place between 31 May and 4 June.
    Higher education institutions are well placed to play a key role in achieving the objectives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda, as well as the European Green Deal. To make the sector’s commitment to environmental sustainability more visible and accessible, EUA recently launched an initiative on greening in higher education institutions. In the spring of 2021, institutions from across the EHEA contributed to a large-scale survey, sharing their approaches and activities in the field.

    The input provided in the survey has great value to European universities and to the broader discussion taking place across Europe on this important topic. Therefore, EUA is pleased to present the preliminary findings during this webinar series, featuring discussions with higher education representatives on the following topics:

    Webinar I - Environmental sustainability and the future of mobility and internationalisation
    31 May, 14.00-15.00 CEST

    Webinar II - The environmental sustainability of learning and teaching
    3 June 2021, 14.00-15.00 CEST

    Webinar III - University strategies and actions for environmental sustainability
    4 June 2021, 14.00-15.00 CEST

    Participation in the webinar series is free of charge and open to anyone interested. Registrations will remain open until the start of each event.
    The topic of environmental sustainability will also be featured in a range of other EUA activities in parallel to the EU’s Green Week, from 31 May to 4 June 2021.
