Welcome to the NUI Galway Sustainability Website

 

Sustainability has been gathering momentum as a core value at our university for a number of years now. Most recently sustainability was enshrined in our Strategic Plan 2020-2025 as one of four key values. Alongside and linked to - respect, openness and excellence – sustainability is now at the heart of everything we do.

Our value of sustainability comes most strongly from our students. This generation faces climate change most vividly. Our students demand that we leave the world in a better place than they found it. In our research, teaching and engagement, and in our actions, we are committed to being an exemplar of climate action.

This is a responsibility of us all so we work with our communities and partners to achieve this.
