Sustainability in Action:
How to Reduce the Ecological Footprint of Higher Education Institutions
Online Event: April 1st from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm (CET)
Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have the vision, knowledge, and power to foster a sustainability transition within their community and the wider society. To help HEIs become transformative agents of sustainability, the EUSTEPs project has developed an open-access, online ‘University Footprint Calculator’ to be used by European universities. This digital tool allows users to calculate the Ecological Footprint (EF) of teaching, research and administrative activities within universities and take informed decisions on how to reduce the impact of their Institutions on the planet.
This event is intended for the whole academic community including all HEI academic staff (educators, professors, researchers), HEI non-academic staff (administrative and technical), HEIs management bodies as well as all interested target audiences who are curious to deepen their understanding of sustainability practices in HEI.
