Sustainability Champions Network Event (King's Buildings)

You're invited to our next Sustainability Champions Network event.

Event details

Top tip: you only need to attend one of these events.

In the survey we sent you last month, you told us you'd like Sustainability Champions events to give you new ideas to take action. At each of these events, you'll hear from:

🌱 Jack Reed and Catherine Dunn, students from Moray House School of Education and Sport, will be talking about how they hope to engage more students and staff in the climate and ecological crisis, with a view to developing a culture of sustainability across the university and beyond.

🌎 Andrea Scarpello, a student from the School of Law, will be talking about the student-led Edinburgh Sustainable Innovation Conference, a one day event in early 2020 which aims to stimulate and inspire attendees to take individual actions to combat climate change.

♻️ Chris McIntosh, Operations Manager at Sport and Exercise, will be talking about what he did to cut down waste in his area.

Prep work for you

We have some prep work for you to do before these events.

The main aim of the network is to create change on campus. So, have a think about:

  • What change do you want to see?
  • What needs to happen to make this change a reality?

Bring these with you to the event.

For inspiration, read stories from staff and students on our blog, Sustainability Awards case studies and past student project grants. Don’t be afraid to dream big when thinking of changes.

Do you have a great sustainability story to share? Please get in touch and we can share them on our blog or at this event.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

The team at the Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability
