The Green Transition at Higher Education Institutions – Examples of Practice from Asia and Europe

The climate crisis is a global challenge requiring a global effort. In order to achieve the goal of limiting the rise of global temperatures to less than 1.5°C as outlined by the Paris Agreement, the world needs to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Universities as research hubs driving innovation and educating the future workforce and leaders are important stakeholders in driving the green transition forward. At the last Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit the heads of states of Asian and European members reaffirmed their strong commitment to the Paris Agreement and the goals set within this agreement.

As the focus of the ASEM Education Process lays on fostering exchange and collaboration between Asia and Europe, we want to reflect on how the two concepts of strengthening internationalisation and promoting ecological sustainability can be united. Furthermore, the conference will give the floor to higher education institutions from Asia and Europe which have implemented initiatives in order to green their internationalisation efforts, their campus management and teaching and hence promote peer learning among higher education institutions in the area of the green transition.
