Inspire and motivate your team, management and students to do more!
The International Green Gown Awards, in partnership with Allianz Global Investors, and supported by UN Environment, recognise exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges around the globe. The Awards cover all aspects of educational institutions – from their teaching and research, leadership, buildings and food to how students can benefit the quality of life in the communities around them. The Awards provide the sector with benchmarks for excellence and are respected by Governments, funding councils, senior management, academics and students.
There are six categories institutions can apply to:
- 2030 Climate Action – NEW for 2022
- Benefitting Society
- Creating Impact
- Next Generation Learning and Skills
- Student Engagement
- Sustainability Institution of the Year
The International Green Gown Awards Stage 1 is open to any university or college across the world*. Apply today for an Award to open up new opportunities for your institution.
