The role of the University in a sustainable future

Vice-Chancellor Professor Simone Buitendijk and Matt Toombs from the UK COP26 Presidency are among speakers at this Priestley Centre event organised by POLIS Postgraduate Researcher Declan Kenny.

With the UK set to host COP26 later this year, now is a key moment in the race to secure a sustainable low carbon and resilient future. What role can universities play in delivering ambitious climate action?
University of Leeds Vice-Chancellor, Professor Simone Buitendijk, is gathering key voices from the university sector and its partners in order to discuss the role of higher education institutions in driving ambition for COP26 and establishing the legacy of cooperation and innovation. We hope you can join us. See the full details and register via Eventbrite.

This webinar is part of Connecting Voices for Climate Action, a week of events convened by the University of Leeds to build local to global ambition for COP26 and beyond. We hope to see you at some of the other events. 

This event is organised by POLIS Postgraduate Researcher Declan Sean Kenny in collaboration with the Priestley Centre as part of his UOL COP26 Taskforce internship.
