Environment, Our Home


The IC celebrated Sustainability in the month of May 2021. We focused on what we can do in the education sector in the area of internationalisation and global engagement to support action against climate change. We shared best practice when implementing sustainability strategies and developing initiatives.  Our timing was designed to align with the UN’s World Environment Day and the British Council’s Going Global 2021 conference, which features The IC’s Sustainability, ‘Environment, Our home’ poster, which was selected for the conference’s virtual gallery.

What are the innovative environmental sustainability projects/practices universities’ international teams have introduced?

We are creating The International Education Knowledge Hub for Environmental Sustainability for The IC Community, open to the wider international education community.  We welcome you to share your examples of best practice in supporting the UN’s SDGs and reducing carbon emission.  Your projects or initiatives could apply to international student recruitment, student mobility, international partnership development or internationalisation at home.

Using The IC’s Environmental Sustainability Model: Innovation, Implementation, Impact, we invite you to submit your innovative projects/practices.

We are pleased to be collaborating with Climate Action Network for International Educators (CANIE). Your best practice will be showcased on The IC Global Partnership website and your work will also be highlighted via the CANIE digital resource library.
