Inspiring leadership is at the heart of our education work. Cambridge Zero aims to enhance lifelong education in a holistic way and embed sustainability so that education and training provide the skills people need to deliver a different future. Involving students in change through a variety of programmes enables us to reach students across disciplines and degrees.
The Living Lab for Sustainability brings together students, academics and staff to test new ideas, apply research to practice, and develop new solutions for enhancing sustainability within the University.
Students bring enthusiasm and ideas, academics bring world-renowned expertise and research, and staff bring practical advice and assistance, leading to more innovative interventions and effective results.
Our doctoral training programmes provide the next generation of researchers with the skills they need to become interdisciplinary leaders and produce cutting-edge research.
Cambridge offers a wide range of sustainability-themed graduate programmes at Master’s and Diploma level, and recently launched two new climate change Master’s programmes.
Sustainability in the curriculum
The University aims for all students to have access to formal or informal opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding relating to sustainability matters and solutions, and is consulting on how sustainability can be further embedded in the curriculum.
University primary school
The University of Cambridge Primary School is an inclusive, ambitious and innovative place of learning. By connecting primary educators with University researchers to create research-informed teaching resources and creative activities, it aims to support children to become agents of hope, able to contribute positively to their world.
Policy challenges collaboration
How can Cambridgeshire reach net zero emissions by 2050? Through the CUSPE Policy Challenges, a team of early-career researchers worked with the County Council to identify the required policy actions to achieve this goal.
Executive education and short courses
CISL’s sustainability leadership education programmes offer senior leaders insight into innovative, commercially compelling ways to address global trends.
The Institute of Continuing Education organises a wide range of accessible part-time and short courses covering aspects of sustainability and climate change.
