The Education pillar focuses on: Inspiring, encouraging, and supporting universities to develop and implement their own transformative strategies for establishing green, resource-efficient and low carbon campuses.
This provides an opportunity to build stakeholder capacity to deliver systemic, institution-wide integration of sustainability principles into all aspects of university business with the view to improve the sustainability performance of universities globally and to provide support to other stakeholders embarking on their own sustainability journeys.
