Have you been involved in a green technology initiative to help your college or university become more sustainable?
If so, you should consider entering the 2010 Green Gown Awards, organised by The Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges (EAUC). There are twelve categories for entries including:
- Carbon Reduction
- Colleges and Smaller Institutions
- Continuous Improvement – Institutional Change
- Continuous Improvement – Specific Area
- Green ICT
- Research and Development
- Social Responsibility
- Student Initiatives and Campaigns
- Sustainable Construction and Refurbishment

For the second year running JISC is sponsoring the Green ICT category. The award will showcase innovative ways that people in education are minimising energy consumption, carbon emissions, waste generation and other environmental impacts associated with ICT use, potentially including the development of hardware or software with environmental benefits.
The deadline for applications is 19 February 2010, and the final results will be announced at a gala banquet in London in June 2010.
