The Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability works to enable the University to understand, explain and deliver on its ambition to be a leading socially responsible and sustainable university.
The University of Edinburgh is committed to being a world leader in addressing global challenges including poverty, climate change and the growing demand for energy, food and water. The Department was created in 2014 to understand how the University can work to respond to these challenges.
We live in an era where the ambition for change has become imperative for achieving environmental and social responsibility. Across the globe, organizations and institutions are beginning to channel their efforts towards creating change for a sustainable future. But what can each sector do to contribute?
Join us for an inspiring series of talks and debates about how each sector has the ability to drive change for a better world. We will be hearing from experts in a variety of sectors, united by the desire to achieve their vision for a sustainable future. The stories of how they, are driving change will contribute to answering a challenging question: "What is your vision for change?"
