Join us for the launch of the Academy for Sustainable Futures

Launching the University’s Academy for Sustainable Futures, which will lead the University’s response to the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis.

As the University moves in to its 60th year and begins a period of renewal through the development of a new Strategic Framework, the world faces many different and existential issues than in the 1960s. The threats of climate change, biodiversity loss and the inevitable consequences on populations both near and far need a clear and unequivocal University response.

To provide a vehicle through which the University will enable change amongst the communities it serves, we will be launching an Academy for Sustainable Futures, that will lead on the delivery of the University’s Response to the Climate Emergency.

Our keynote speaker for this event is Dr Jane Davidson, Jane is Pro Vice-Chancellor Emeritus at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and the author of #futuregen: lessons from a small country.

The Launch Event, which will take place on Tuesday 15th March 2022, 5:00pm-8:00pm, The Verena Holmes Building, Canterbury campus. Find out more and book your place
