You want to advance sustainability at your university and boost the sustainability engagement of students and staff? But you have questions about how best to do this?

Then learn more about the award-winning Green Office Model: A Green Office (GO) is a sustainability hub that informs, connects and supports students, staff and faculty, as well as initiates its own change initiatives, to embed sustainability in the education, research and operations of a university. The model won the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in 2015.

In this 45min webinar, you will learn more about what a GO is, how it works and the steps you can take to establish one.

Date: Wednesday, 10 May 2017, 12:30-13:15 (CET)

Target group: Students, staff and faculty who want to establish their own Green Office / Sustainability Hub, as well as students who just started working in a GO and want to learn more about the theory behind the model.

Over the last five years he assisted with the establishment of over 20 Green Offices in 6 European countries and delivered over 150 talks and workshops in 11 countries on the topic of sustainability in higher education.
