Join us for a series of events on 22nd and 23rd September 2022 that will be focused on sustainability and sustainable development.
On 22nd September, the University of Warwick will launch a new sustainability strategy as a set of guiding principles that will inform our decisions and activity, mainstreaming sustainability in to the decisions that we make, embedding it in to the research we undertake and the education that we offer. We will additionally be launching a new vision for the Institute for Global Sustainable Development (IGSD) and hearing from a panel of high level speakers about their views on sustainable development. Everyone is welcome.
On 23rd September, IGSD will host a research conference exploring key research themes. Alongside this we will have a vibrant exhibition space where participants can meet up with those involved in programmes, research centres and institutes across Warwick that all play an important role in driving forward the sustainability research agenda.
Both events will take place in the in Oculus building on the main campus at the University of Warwick. The building is exemplary in its environmental credentials. Tests indicate that it performs well above our already high standards for sustainability in new buildings.
There is no charge for attending and we look forward to seeing you there!
