Sustainable HE: Community Workshops

The Committee of the Association of National Teaching Fellows and CATE winners (CANTF), in association with Advance HE, calls for proposals for a themed workshop series, to focus on the UN Goals for Sustainable Development. 

National Teaching Fellows and CATE winners are invited to propose a workshop which aims to share practices around how the UK Higher Education sector (and others) can seek to progress the broad aims of sustainability, around any of the following topics (UN Sustainable Development Goals): 

UN sustainable development goals

Bids should be led by an NTF or CATE winner, with expertise in the proposed topic, and other speakers may also be invited. The workshop should aim to share practices in delivering sustainable higher education, that can be adopted by attending delegates. 

Successful workshop proposers will be asked to contribute at least one case study (1000 words) outlining the practices described in the workshop to a higher education audience. The case studies will then be collated into a compendium of practice, to ensure good dissemination of your work via Advance HE Connect and other online platforms. 

If you would like to submit a proposal, please send the completed form (max 2 pages), (click to download below), to Dr Julie Hulme ( by the closing date of 4thJanuary 2020. Decisions will be made in January (the decision making panel will comprise the two lead members of CANTF, Julie Hulme and Debbie Holley, plus two others) with a view to promoting the workshops which will be held in spring 2021. A total of four workshops will be funded, with priority given to one from each nation of the UK. Winning bids will be expected to demonstrate how they will disseminate expertise from within the NTF/CATE community, how they will measure the impact of the workshop, and how they will promote the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion. We look forward to receiving your applications soon! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or wish to discuss the suitability of your proposal before submitting.
