Atlantic Technological University (ATU) is one of the largest multi-campus universities in Ireland, serving a diverse group of learners, staff, communities and organisations from our region and further afield.

ATU has been actively involved in the national Green Campus programme since its inception back in 2010 with the GMIT Mayo Campus becoming the first Institute of Technology to be awarded a Green Flag in 2011. Both the ATU Mayo and Connemara campuses has subsequently been awarded other Green Flags, which has been led by both students and staff voluntarily giving their time to improve waste prevention and recycling, water and energy conservation, campus biodiversity, procurement, and sustainable transport.

ATU is focused on developing an educational framework to facilitate a transition from learning ABOUT sustainability using narrow discipline-specific approaches to a more reformative learning FOR sustainability approach where campus operations, curriculum and institute policy begin to be reconceptualized to capacity-building and transformative learning AS sustainability through experiential learning communities of practice to bring about whole institutional change within a curriculum, campus, community, collaborative research and culture framework.
