The two-day programme is available online and features keynote sessions as well as optional breakouts that allow delegates to tailor their conference experience to their own needs.

Keynote sessions start on Wednesday morning with a panel discussion, led by representatives from both UWE and University of Bristol, exploring Bristol’s year as the 2015 European Green Capital and the opportunities, challenges and legacy of the year.

David Orr, the Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies & Politics EMERITUS and Counselor to the President at Oberlin College, joins us on Thursday morning to discuss sustainable communities. The conference concludes with a session delivered by Mac Macartney, founder of Embercome – a charity that seeks to inspire people to create a just, peaceful and sustainable world – who will deliver an engaging session that is sure to leave the audience full of ideas on how to promote sustainability at their institutions!

The conference workshops will be split into four categories based on the EAUC’s LiFE framework, ensuring a whole institution approach to sustainability. The LiFE framework categories include Estates and Operations, Partnerships and Engagement, Leadership and Governance and Learning and Teaching and Research and the breakout sessions will explore sustainable issues with regard to each.


The conference, which is supported by headline sponsor Carbon Credentials, offers opportunities for all attendees to network during the Exhibition. It also provides a social programme for a more relaxed atmosphere. There is a pre-conference social organised for the night prior to the conference on 24th May on campus, so if you’re planning on arriving the night before come and join us!

The annual Gala Dinner will be held on the evening on 25th May at UWE where, following a Food for Life Gold accredited three course meal, there will be entertainment so that everyone can let their hair down! On the morning of 26th May there are also activities organised on campus before the conference begins.
