Sustainability - Climate Action Week

Don’t forget to keep a space in your diaries for Climate Action Week at the end of October!

Working in conjunction with a Canterbury-wide climate action week, organised by Canterbury Climate Action Partnership (CCAP) and involving Canterbury BID, councils and others, we have got a great week planned from Monday 25 – Friday 29 October.

Taking place in the run-up to COP26 (the 26th UN Climate Change Conference), we will be holding a series of events focused on sustainability at Kent and celebrating the launch of the University’s Sustainability Strategy.

To see the plan for the week, please visit our Climate Action Webpage, which we’ll continue to update as content for some of the events is finalised.

Among events taking place are:

Launch of the University of Kent’s Sustainability Strategy – Tuesday 26 October – 12.00-13.00

Introduced by Professor Richard Reece, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education and Student Experience, this free online event will include a presentation given by Catherine Morris, Environmental Adviser, of the four major themes running through the strategy and a panel discussion. Please register in advance – details on how to do so will be updated to the webpage.

COP26@Kent: Co-Create your campus of the future – Thursday 28 October – 12.00-14.00

The Sustainability Team is inviting everyone to take part in a special event hosted in the Gulbenkian to co-create the campus of the future. They’ll be showcasing key areas of sustainability activity at the University and asking students, staff and community members to have their say and share their ideas of how we might transform these areas into truly sustainable and innovative good practice exemplars.
