University launches new Sustainability Champions network

The network is open to all staff and students interested in learning how to live and work in a more sustainable way.

As staff, students and citizens, our decisions matter.  The new Sustainability Champions network will support the University community to make positive changes in response to the climate emergency and global Sustainable Development Goals.

The role of Sustainability Champions

  • Act as a champion for sustainability in your area of work, study, residence or student society, and work with others to embed good practice.

  • Increase your own knowledge of sustainability by reading materials and attending events organised throughout the year.

  • Support and empower others to become more sustainable.

  • Be an honest and critical friend to the Department for Social Responsibility & Sustainability, giving us feedback on how the support we offer is working for you in your area of the University.

What are the benefits?

There are multiple benefits to being a Sustainability Champion: 

  • Join an enthusiastic network of staff and students from across the University who are also interested in sustainability.

  • Receive newsletters, training and events to increase your knowledge of sustainability and your confidence to take action, leading to professional and personal development.

  • Take on a flexible role designed to suit different interests, knowledge levels and workloads.

  • A space to make your voice heard and find solutions to sustainability issues you face.
