ENLIGHT GLOBAL DIALOGUE 2023 – KICK OFF

How can we make our campuses and communities sustainable?

Are you part of a student group interested in sustainability issues? Let’s talk about it!

The ENLIGHT Global Dialogue invites student organisations/associations from the ENLIGHT partner universities* and across the globe to talk about student–led sustainability initiatives and share best practice. The event will take place online (31st of January 2023) to facilitate global participation.

*Comenius University is part of the ENLIGHT Alliance from 2020

If you are part of a student society or organisation and you believe you have made a difference in promoting sustainability either on campus or in your community we invite you to submit your proposal for presentation.

Submitted proposals will be evaluated by a panel consisting of academics, students and external representatives. The selection panel will evaluate proposals based on:

• Description of the sustainability challenge addressed by the project.
• Relevance for the theme of sustainability in our campuses and communities.
• Local impact on the community / campus.
• New innovative ideas.

We welcome projects that view sustainability from either an economic, social or environmental perspective.

The projects selected will be presented to a global audience during the ENLIGHT Global Dialogue. One project will then be selected to receive the ENLIGHT Global Citizenship Award which includes travel and accommodation to participate in an ENLIGHT conference in May or June 2023.
