External Partnerships

The Sustainability team works closely with a number of external organisations. We are educational members of the Environmental Association of Universities which allows us to share knowledge of delivering sustainability in HE from Universities across the UK. 

We also represent the University in a number of external community action groups such a Canterbury Climate Action Partnership (CCAP) and the Canterbury SDG Forum


Vice chancellor Karen Cox

We will embed sustainability through building the UN Sustainable Development Goals into our research, education, leadership, operations, administration and engagement.
