In 2023, the Sustainable Universities Network (SUN) in collaboration with the Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability (ACTS) is organising a national sustainability fortnight!
Overwhelmingly, sustainability student groups and staff departments are overworked. This sustainability fortnight aims to reduce the amount of work required to put on sustainability fortnight.
If you are putting on events during this week, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for your event to be advertised on our national schedule.
Aims of this initiative
We know sustainability weeks are an amazing way to engage your community but we know they can be a lot of work! Hence, our overarching aim is to create a national, coordinated sustainability fortnight.
Any online event that any participating university group or department organises will be added to a national schedule. This aims to reduce the amount of events you need to organise as you can just advertise the events others are putting on to your students.
NOTE: Each day of the fortnight is themed!
Online events that match the themes will be included in an online schedule.
September 4th: Welcome to Sustainability Fortnight
Tip: Hybrid events tend to be more accessible to a variety of people. Having an online component means that people from all over the country can come and listen.
Another tip: put on events that are practical and answer questions that students (and staff) are genuinely asking. Unique information is valuable as you can search for most information online!
