Arc Universities

Watch the webinar, hosted by Professor Simon Pollard OBE of Cranfield University, showcasing the environmental ambitions of the Arc universities. This event provided 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? Imagine what could happen if we succeed?

This webinar, the first in a series of events looked at what the Arc Universities Group is doing to contribute to the wider aspirations of the Arc region, aspired to stimulate further ideas, actions, collaboration opportunities and partnerships. Together, we can play a full role on building a green economic region that showcases the very best of environmental sustainability in practice.
