  1. NTEU publishes green universities report

    Posted 7 November 2011 by Adam Knobel (NSW Division)

    The Functional Dynamics of Green Universities was written by John Rafferty and Carolyn O’Dwyer of Charles Sturt University, with support of the NTEU NSW Division. It came out of a NSW union conference in late 2010, which examined the potential contribution of workers in the education and services industries to promote sustainability within their workplaces and their unions.
     
    The impetus for this report came from NTEU members who wanted to unpack some of the language around sustainability initiatives and green scorecards on campuses and develop a model for ongoing engagement. The writers issue a challenge to the Australian higher education sector to broaden and intensify its efforts for sustainability and embed these into their culture and practices.

    The report is available for download below and from www.pushingtheboundaries.org.au/reports
