HUMANE Sustainability Summit - 1er au 3 mai 2022 - Ghent Universitydu dimanche 01 mai 2022 au mardi 03 mai 2022
The race to net zero
Hosted by Ghent University, May 1-3
Sharing good practice on universities' endeavours to tackle the climate crisis
If the historic 2015 Paris Agreement on Sustainable Development Goals was a turning point, COP 26 in Glasgow awakened the whole of civil society that the climate emergency requires concerted, accelerated action.
Whilst amplifying the unique role of universities as knowledge transfer organisations and engines of innovation when it comes to climate change action, it also challenged them to expedite the implementation of their own net zero strategies.
- How is an institution's sustainability and social responsibility agenda best led?
- How are internal and external stakeholders engaged to commit to sustainability goals?
- How is student opinion and activism harnessed?
- What are the big barriers that must be overcome to move strategies forward?
- How is progress measured, monitored and rewarded?
These are just some of the questions the programme will address. With speaker contributions from around Europe, you will be engaged in an immersive, interactive and practical learning experience, as well as widening your international professional networks regarding sustainability strategy, policy and planning.
The programme commences on Sunday evening the 1st of May at an informal get-to-know-each-other dinner.
