Launch of the Sustainability Exchange - Education gets new ground-breaking knowledge bank

The EAUC is delighted to announce the launch of the Sustainability Exchange, a pioneering centralised knowledge bank and community on sustainability. Leading organisations from across the further and higher education sector have joined forces to create the 'Sustainability Exchange' the UK's first centralised information portal and online community for the sector, sharing a wealth of information, experience and resources that are available to everyone.

Search the Sustainability Exchange and join the community by logging in at www.sustainabilityexchange.ac.uk

EAUC Members can use their existing log ins* to access the site.

Today, universities, colleges and schools face enormous pressure from stakeholders and students alike to be more sustainably-minded. This pressure, along with the need to comply with ever-changing legislation, means the demand for knowledge, discussion and debate on sustainable development is greater than ever. It will provide a place for colleagues in different institutions to interact and share their sustainability experiences via community forums, news feeds, an events diary, best practice guides, toolkits, reports, research, webinars and videos. However, the Sustainability Exchange would not have been possible without its founding partners, whose passion, knowledge and experience in sustainability have helped drive the project forward.

"The dynamic sustainability sector, with constant updates to compliancy and new legislation means that the Sustainability Exchange adds value from day one," explains Iain Patton, Chief Executive of the EAUC. "Accessible via a website portal, the Sustainability Exchange will provide colleges, universities and other education providers with information and resources that were previously unavailable to many and, most importantly, all in one place."

The Sustainability Exchange is for everyone in tertiary education and will grow to support and share knowledge across further education, higher education and adult learning sector throughout the UK and to our overseas colleagues, building a strong resource for all to benefit from.

The Sustainability Exchange has been created with the support of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) via its Leadership, Governance and Management (LGM) Fund. The EAUC and Staffordshire University have led a partnership of 20 other organisations to deliver greater efficiencies through the collaboration of educational institutions.
