Session 08.1

You can’t call yourself out: the challenge of tackling climate change in higher education

We can’t deny it any longer: our field has a strong impact on the environment. While we all acknowledge the benefits of internationalisation, the carbon emissions and carbon footprint produced by students and staff mobility are a problem that can’t be ignored. How can universities and practitioners solve this ethical dilemma? This session will be a thought-provoking and engaging conversation around what we need to know and how we need to change to tackle this problem.
