EUA webinar “Environmental sustainability and the future of mobility and internationalisation”, with contribution from the University of Edinburgh
11 May 2021 | From partners
The European University Association (EUA) is organising a three-part event between 31 May and 4 June dedicated to “Greening in European higher education institutions”.
The webinars will draw from the conclusions of the large-scale survey on greening in higher education institutions across the EHEA that was led in the spring of 2021. The first webinar titled “Environmental sustainability and the future of mobility and internationalisation” will take place on 31 May between 14.00 and 15.00 CEST and will have the contribution of Chris Litwiniuk from University of Edinburgh and member of the UNICA Green Working Group.
The webinar will explore the impact of institutional strategies and approaches for greening and how these are changing the landscape of internationalisation and mobility. The discussion will bring together representatives of several higher education networks and institutions, as well as the European Commission. Institutional approaches to decreasing the carbon footprint of internationalisation, and opportunities and support from the European funding programmes, will be showcased.
Participation in the webinar is free of charge and open to anyone interested. Registrations will remain open until the start of the event. Learn more and register here.
The EUA series on “Greening in European higher education institutions” also includes webinars on “The environmental sustainability of learning and teaching” (3 June 2021, 14.00-15.00 CEST) and on “University strategies and actions for environmental sustainability” (Friday, 4 June 2021, 14.00 – 15.00 CEST). 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.
