Do you have an idea for a sustainable project at the University? The Sustainable Campus Fund (pending Court approval) is a real opportunity for anyone in the University to propose projects that could reduce the University’s impact on the environment.

Edinburgh’s expertise in climate change and its effects is world-leading. Its researchers have secured more than £50 million over the past seven years to fund work on climate science, emissions mitigation and sustainable solutions.

Edinburgh Action for the Climate harnesses the expertise of the University's many academics currently conducting ground-breaking research in these areas.
