The Green Office Model
Relatore: Dott. Paolo Ruffino
Abstract: “Educational institutions and governments should provide the institutional support, resources and legitimacy for youth-led change processes towards sustainability. Mechanisms should include dedicated funding, institutional integration, working space, mandates, recognition, and training for youth-led sustainability initiatives.” UNESCO Education for Sustainable Development Youth Statement, Japan 2014
A Green Office Model is the vision of a student-led and staff-supported sustainability hub that initiates, coordinates, and supports sustainability activities at an institution of higher or further education.
The Green Office Model gave rise to a growing movement of students, staff, faculty and organisation across Europe that use the model as a source of inspiration to get the necessary resources, mandates, and support for student-led sustainability efforts
