Celebrate with us online

Our annual Sustainability Awards Celebration event has been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19, so we are celebrating the achievements of the University community online and remotely on social media instead.

Recipients will receive their trophies at a later date.

I am delighted to announce this year’s Sustainability Awards. Now more than ever we need to come together as a staff and student community and celebrate our successes in making our world a better place. My heartfelt congratulations and thanks to all of the winners and those taking part for the work you do. Stay safe and please keep doing what you are doing.
