Clubs & Societies Awards

Make your student club or society more sustainable by following our Sustainability Awards framework.

Recognising sustainability in sports clubs and student societies

If you’re a student involved in a sports club and/or student society, you can work with your student group to participate in the Clubs & Societies Awards.

It’s an opportunity for student groups to engage, create and act on developing a sustainable and ethical future through their activities no matter your background or area of study.

How it works

The Awards provide a framework of 30 actions to support students to make positive social change. From light-touch actions like using active travel or using reusable water bottles down to more hands-on actions such as applying for project funding or taking part in a campaign, there are many entry points to get involved.

You can enter your sports club or student society for an Award, with the opportunity to work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.
