Climate change was the clear mega trend UK universities and colleges need to better recognise - so say judges of the 2019 Green Gown Awards.

A judging alumni of over 90 national and international judges – a who’s who of leading names from the education, business and sustainability worlds – met to judge the 2019 Green Gown Award Finalists at the PwC Headquarters in London on Tuesday 1st October.

Emma Wilcox, Chief Executive of the Society for the Environment, was among the judges who also represented institutions including United Nations Environment, Russell Group, Unilever, Advance HE, Marks and Spencer, EAUC Fellows, National Union of Students, National Audit Office, PwC – among many more.
