Each of us, individually, play an integral part in the wider environment and accordingly should act as good citizens of Earth. This University commits to support and promote such sustainability citizenship amongst its student and staff population. UCC is proud to have been the first University in the world to receive the An Taisce Green Campus award, and the University sees the Green Campus programme as a significant component of its sustainability efforts. The University strives to promote sustainability citizenship through its Green Campus programme in a manner that is student-led, research informed and practice focused.
Furthering the promotion of sustainability citizenship beyond the Green Campus programme and through all aspects of University life is key to the full implementation of the sustainability strategy.
