2021 EAUC Climate Conference

GCU Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Pamela Gillies CBE FRSE gave a video presentation at the 2021 EAUC Virtual Climate Conference. The one-day event brought together academics, educational leaders, professionals and students from universities and colleges around the world with the aim of inspiring and coordinating the sector to address the climate emergency. 

During her presentation, Professor Gillies gave an overview of GCU’s actions to help tackle climate change, covering our campus and built environment, education and research, and our collaborative partnerships and networks that we work with in Scotland and around the world to affect change. 

Professor Gillies said: “Universities have a key role to play, in partnership with others, in finding solutions and in creating the next cadre of climate emergency thought leaders and policy makers. Glasgow Caledonian University will actively continue to contribute because, as Chancellor Lennox has said, we are in the middle of a global emergency.”
