UniToGO, GreenTO, its supporting student NGO, and Polito Green Team are proud to announce that Turin will host the first Southern European Green Office Summit from 30. May till 2. June 2018. We are joining forces with rootAbility, a non-profit social business supporting students and staff to advance sustainability within their institutions, who co-hosted the previous Green Office Summits.
The aim of this gathering is to explore how to adapt the Green Office (GO) model to diverse contexts, particularly in Southern Europe, to bridge the gap between Northern European models and Southern European sustainability initiatives. As first Green Office in Italy and in South Europe, UniToGO is gaining substantial momentu...m, implementing a growing number of sustainability actions. This summit will be a breakthrough for the GO model to spread in Italy and Southern Europe.
The program will primarily focus on supporting students, staff and academics interested in becoming sustainability change-makers in their institutions. GO experts and GO alumni will share their knowledge and experience and participants will be equipped with multiple tools and methods to adapt, design and set up a Green Office in their institution. The summit will also be a great opportunity to share knowledge and perspectives on sustainability in higher education and the role of SDGs. Expert on sustainability will organise interactive workshops and the participants will be encouraged to actively participate bringing in their ideas and experiences.
The participation fee will be around € 100 (partially funded by UniToGO and GreenTo) and will cover accommodation and board as well as local transport expenses and learning materials.
Planning is underway – save the date and stay tuned for updates!
