Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Be part of the Sustainability Awards for students

Students are central to the Sustainability Awards. Students living in accommodation are supported to encourage sustainable behaviour at their residence. Students are also encouraged to volunteer to help make a difference with the Sustainability Awards.


Recipients are celebrated at our annual Sustainability Awards Celebration, where winners are presented with unique wooden trophies crafted by the Grassmarket Community Project, and laser etched by the Edinburgh College of Art workshop. There will also be an opportunity to network with students and staff over a complimentary lunch.
