Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges
Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges is a partnership initiative between EAUC – the Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education and UNEP, with EAUC acting as secretariat. Established in 2019, and joining as a Race to Zero Partner in June 2000, they have gained 1,115 signatories across the world from 77 countries who have committed to be net-zero by 2050 at the very latest. This represents nearly 11 million students globally.
Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges advocates for young minds to be equipped with the knowledge, skills and capability to respond to the ever-growing challenges of climate change. They also support universities and colleges by providing tools, resources and case studies.
Below is a message from Nigel Topping, previous UK High Level Climate Champion for COP26 and Gonzalo Munoz, previous Chilean High Level Climate Champion for COP25 on why universities and colleges need to take action now.
Ahead of COP27, Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges has over 1,000 members.
