Green Gown Awards

AllianzGI is partnering with the International Green Gown Awards to encourage the next generation to take action for a sustainable future.

Administered by EAUC-The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education (EAUC) and supported by UN Environment Programme, the International Green Gown Awards was launched in 2013 to recognize exceptional sustainability initiatives undertaken by universities and colleges across the globe.

Why this partnership matters to us

Beyond promoting financial literacy and offering mentoring programmes among younger generations, we are keen to support the next generation’s engagement in addressing the multifaceted challenges facing our planet. Partnering with the International Green Gown Awards is an opportunity to partner with academia to encourage and recognise brilliant and innovative ideas and plans, an abundance of which will be needed to achieve a sustainable future."
