SGSAH launches GREEN/GRADUATE Strategy and Operations Plan

In the context of climate crisis and in the push for environmental sustainability, SGSAH is developing itself as a GREEN/GRADUATE school. The aims behind this are to:

  • Interrogate our own operational processes and develop environmentally sustainable policy and processes.
  • Advance thinking around the role of arts and humanities research, particularly at PhD/ECR researcher level, including within the environmental arts and humanities and in interdisciplinary terms.
  • Leverage SGSAH’s status as a national graduate school to take a leading position in addressing the challenges of climate crisis.
  • Align SGSAH with external drivers from funders, including the AHRC/UKRI, the SFC, and the Scottish Government.

As part of our Earth Day celebrations on 22 April 2022, we published our GREEN/GRADUATE Strategy and Operations Plan. This plan sets out how we are going to develop as a GREEN/GRADUATE school in the context of the current and post-COVID-19 environment.

The current Strategy and Operations Plan is an agreed document at January 2022, but will be regularly reviewed. Consultation has included the following groups and events:

  • Scottish GREEN/GRADUATE School for Arts & Humanities School Summer School Workshop: PhD researchers (June 2020)
  • Scottish GREEN/GRADUATE School for Arts & Humanities Workshop: PhD researchers (March 2021)
  • SGSAH Board members (March 2021)
  • SGSAH Executive members (June and December 2021)
  • Doctoral Researcher Committee (November 2021)
