International Green Gown Awards for educational institutions - deadline extended


Do you want to inspire and motivate your team, management and students to do more?

The International Green Gown Awards, supported by UN Environment, recognise exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges. The Awards cover all aspects of educational institutions – from their teaching and research, leadership, buildings and food to how students can benefit the quality of life in the communities around them. The Awards provide the sector with benchmarks for excellence and are respected by Government, funding councils, senior management, academics and students.

The International Green Gown Awards Stage 1 is open to any university or college across the world. Apply today for an Award to open up new opportunities for your institution.

There is no limit on the number of applications or categories each institution can enter. Entry is free of charge.
