Arc Universities
Building a green economic region – the environmental ambitions of the Arc Universities

Join our webinar to discover the contributions of the Arc Universities to achieving environmentally sustainable economic growth in the Arc.

A chance to reflect, to ask questions, and to join the debate. How do we ensure that the skills, innovation, research and teaching in our region’s Universities help to deliver environmentally sustainable economic growth?

This webinar, the first in a series of events looking at what the Arc Universities are doing to contribute to the wider aspirations of the region, aims to stimulate further ideas, actions and collaboration opportunities and partnerships.
