About The Project

During the build-up to COP21, the GRLI linked with a Global Alliance of universities, colleges and student networks to inspire and empower students, academics, staff and leaders to make their organisations and communities more sustainable, resilient and just. We developed a joint statement and delivered it on 14th October to senior government officials attending this most important global climate summit ever. The event is of the largest gatherings of citizens, executives, students and sustainability professionals ever. The voice of tertiary education and the critical role it plays in researching and equipping tomorrow’s workers and citizens must be heard in Paris.
