CANIE receives the EAIE President's Award for 2022

Winning this award from EAIE means the world to all of us at CANIE. It reminds us that all the hard work put in by volunteers around the world is recognised and is starting to have some impact. More than this, it gives us hope that collectively, as a sector, we can rise to the challenge of climate change and find new ways to make the vital work of internationalisation more sustainable and climate-positive.

The CANIE Accord

Take climate action! Become a signatory of the CANIE Accord.

Following the CANIE COP26 Leaders Forum, back in November 2021, our sector has come together at the highest level to organize around the truth that we are facing a climate crisis that International Education has a role to play in leading on action, and a set of principles to guide those actions as we work towards net-zero.

How can your organization take climate action today? Learn about the commitments your organization can make to become a signatory of the CANIE Accord, and read the CANIE Glasgow Paper, which provides important research and context to the CANIE Accord framework.
