This event is part of a series of virtual events by the UK Climate Commission for University and College Students and Leaders. It will be hosted by EAUC  - the Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education, the Association of Colleges (AoC) and the Committee of University Chairs (CUC).

We invite members of the Climate Commission Council, Expert Witnesses and Observers to attend this meeting. Other interested parties are also welcome to attend.

The purpose of the event is to consult with Governors and Chairs from Colleges and Universities on the Climate Commission's insights thus far to ensure the needs of the sector are being met in the Commission's work.

The Climate Commission has identified 5 priority areas on which the sector must focus to ensure there are clear and feasible pathways to achieving greenhouse gas emissions targets to tackle the climate crisis. We are hosting Evidence Gathering Events to seek expert advice on these topics. We will use this advice to inform our outputs and action plan. Priority areas include:  

Mobilising the Further and Higher education voice for impact and influence
Research and Innovation
Measuring and Reporting Scope 1, 2 and 3 Emissions
Deep Adaptation
Education and Student Experience

This event will be hosted after all Evidence Gathering Events to consult with Further and Higher Education Governors and Chairs on the Climate Commission's findings.
