Union declares support for the Rio+20 Declaration

The Union of UEA Students would like to indicate its strong support for the University of East Anglia to sign up to the Rio+20 Declaration. Its goals reflect much of the work that already exists on campus and is directly in line with our values concerning environmental sustainability. As a university that has a leading reputation for environmental research and training, and one that aims to reflect this in practice, this would be a great opportunity for UEA to act once again as a model for other higher education institutions.

The Union understands that this declaration will mandate the University to work towards the following:

–      Teach sustainable development concepts
–      Encourage research on sustainable development issues
–      Green our campuses
–      Support sustainability efforts
–     Engage with and share results through international frameworks
