Green campus initiatives at Mayo, Letterfrack and Galway campuses

GMIT Summer Galway Campus

We are delighted to announce that the GMIT Galway campus (Dublin Road, Galway) and GMIT Centre for Creative Arts & Media (CCAM in Galway City) are officially registering for Green Campus status.

Of course, our Mayo and Letterfrack campuses have already achieved Green Campus status.  In fact, GMIT Mayo was the first Institute of Technology in the world to be awarded the status of Green Campus by The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and An Taisce in 2011.

The aims of the GMIT Green Campus project are to:

  • Raise awareness of environmental issues
  • Take practical actions under the Green Campus themes
