Scotland’s colleges and Universities have been responding to the Climate Emergency by putting sustainable methods in place. The Further and Higher education sector have been working harder than ever on their sustainable development goals since September 2017, when SDG Accord – the university and college sector’s collective response to sustainable global goals – was launched.
EAUC Scotland has collected case studies from Scottish colleges and universities which align with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which include Affordable and Clean Energy and Sustainable Cities and Communities. It’s clear to see that the country’s colleges have been working hard on their Sustainable Development Goals, with Scottish colleges reducing their carbon footprint by 18% since 2015/16. The case studies showcase the good work colleges such as Argyll College UHI, Edinburgh College, Glasgow Clyde College and many more, are doing.
Some of the sustainable projects highlighted in the case studies report have also been shortlisted for this year’s Sustainability Award at CDN’s College Awards, which take place in Glasgow on Thursday 21 November. Watch this space to find out who the winner is…
