Recognising exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by the world's universities and colleges, the International Green Gown Awards set the bar and put every learning institution at the heart of delivering the UN Global Goals.

Charlotte Bonner, CEO of EAUC and secretariat of the Awards says: "The education sector has a critical role in contributing to our international sustainability goals. This contribution includes preparing learners for their futures, embedding sustainability using ‘whole organisation approaches’, supporting a just transition, taking climate and biodiversity action and shaping society for the better through research and innovation. This is increasingly being recognised around the globe – the role of education now being part of the UN COP agenda is a clear signal of this.t's the tenth anniversary of the International Green Gown Awards this year. 

Through the awards we’re delighted to recognise and celebrate the people and initiatives that are most impactful and innovative across tertiary education internationally. We’ve recently seen a huge spike in interest in the awards - last year saw a 66% increase in applications – so we look forward to continuing to provide a platform for what excellence looks like across our sector." 

We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU)L’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF)International Association of Universities (IAU) and the Higher Education Sustainability Initiative (HESI).
