One of the city’s many green places
Dear Green Place
Glasgow was the perfect place to host the
sustainable and inclusive COP26 global
event. The City has set a target for carbon
neutrality by 2030, aims to be one of
the greenest cities in Europe through
its Sustainable Glasgow campaign
and is 4th in the world in the Global
Destination Sustainability Index.
Throughout COP26, GCU’S
Glasgow campus hosted daily
events for thousands of young
people to inspire the next
generation to take an active
role in protecting the planet.
“GCU has a full mix of international students and local
students, which creates a really welcoming community
for everyone. The University has allowed me to grow as
a person, it also provides me with the perfect mix – a fun
social life, meeting loads of new people from all around the
world and also a great mix educationally. The campus itself
is incredibly modern and just a cool place to hang out in.”
