Online welcome event
Wednesday 6 October 2021, 3:30pm to 5pm
Keen to get involved in sustainability and social responsibility during your time at the University of Edinburgh but don't know where to start?
The Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability (SRS) offers a range of ways for students and staff to get stuck in, no matter your background, what you are studying or where you’re working.
Whatever you’re interested in, we've got you covered:
- training and development opportunities
- attending events and workshop
- volunteering in the community
- connecting with like-minded individuals
Join us for a digital welcome event that will feature University academics, students and staff who will highlight a number of opportunities you can engage with this year.
Want to get started before the welcome event?
We recommend beginning with our Introduction to Sustainability online course. It will introduce you to some of the ways you can become more sustainable at the University of Edinburgh, and in your own life.
Find out more about developing your skills, funding opportunities and how to become a Sustainability Champion on our student page.
