Universities told to set environmental example

Universities told to set environmental example
Universities have a responsibility to make sure graduates have a wide understanding of environmental issues, experts have claimed.

Push.co.uk has suggested that educational establishments should have a more central role is teaching young people about issues such as renewable energy technologies and low carbon finance.

The independent university guide explained that the role of higher education is to innovate and this includes providing grounding in green concerns.

Johnny Rich, editor of Push.co.uk, said: "Sending graduates out into the world without demonstrating that everything we do has an impact on our environment would certainly be a betrayal of this notion of providing a 'universal' education.

"Setting an example in their approach to the environment is certainly well within their remit."

A consultation between several organisations is currently underway to find methods universities can use to decrease carbon emissions.

HEFCE, Universities UK and GuildHE are asking for responses to the problem up until October 16th, as they try to develop a new carbon reduction strategy.
