IEMA signs up to the further education sector’s SDG Accord
At the end of September, IEMA pledged its support to the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) Accord, the further education sector’s collective response to the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The accord aims to inspire, celebrate and advance the critical role that education has in delivering the SDGs and the value this brings to governments, business and wider society. Signatories, including IEMA and a range of educational establishments representing over 12 million students, will annually report on their progress and share their learning with each other, both nationally and internationally. Progress will be collated and presented at the annual UN High-Level Political Forum.
The EAUC is seeking further signatories from leaders of institutions, university and colleges as well as students, academic and facilities staff. Visit www.sdgaccord.org
