Addressing Climate Change and International Partnerships

With the undeniable presence of climate change and its impact on our lives, various reports have emphasized the need for higher education institutions to revise their international strategies and processes in order to mitigate their carbon footprint.

More and more universities rankings include now sustainability ratings related to commitments to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have developed their own sustainability rankings such as The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, the QS World University Rankings: Sustainability.
At Education Lighthouse, we strongly believe in the necessity for all of us to reassess our travel practices, international partnerships, and recruitment of international students through a lens of sustainability. We are committed to progressively adopting more environmentally friendly travel methods whenever possible.
By collaborating with us, you will have the opportunity to have one of our staff members act as your local representative. This approach not only reduces your carbon emissions but also offers cost and time efficiency.

Climate Action Network for International Educators

In September 2023, Education Lighthouse proudly endorsed the CANIE accord, solidifying our dedication to strengthen the collaborative efforts of the global education sector in addressing the climate crisis.

The Climate Action Network for International Educators (CANIE) is a volunteer grassroots initiative formed by international education practitioners from around the world who see the need and opportunity for the sector to take bold climate action. Through open-access resources, specialized events, networking and information sharing, CANIE aims to mobilize the full power of the international education community to address our contribution to the climate crisis.
