2012 was a tremendously successful year for ACTS – we continued to grow as an association, both in members and with our role in the tertiary education sector. To highlight our success and provide detailed information on our programs and initiatives from last year, we are delighted to announce the release of the 2012 ACTS Annual Report. The report summarises membership, organisational changes, the 12th International ACTS Conference and Green Gown Awards, international collaboration and development, plus much much more.

We believe that the presence of ACTS is going from strength to strength as we continue to provide support and resources for members in the tertiary education sector. Moving forward into 2013 we have many exciting things to look forward to.  We will continue to offer our broad range of sustainability initiatives and opportunities. In September we look forward to our annual international conference themed “Sharing Learning: Lessons from sustainable communities” which will we held at the Novotel, Sydney Olympic Park, in conjunction with the annual Green Gown Awards Australasia. This is always a well-attended, much anticipated event bringing you all the latest developments in the sector as well as the opportunity to learn from and network with like-minded colleagues and organisations. It’s also an opportunity to be inspired, motivated and to have fun and gain insights to take back to your institutions to help us spread the sustainability message.

Finally, the ACTS team would like to say thank you for all your efforts in 2012 and we look forward to another fun, fruitful and prosperous year in 2013.
