I decided to join because it would give me opportunities to meet like-minded people across campus, and become inspired to get involved in other initiatives. The experience has been extremely positive so far – at the networking events, I find myself thinking “that sounds interesting – how can I get involved?” after every single conversation I have with other students and members of staff!

The role of Sustainability Champions

  • Act as a champion for sustainability in your area of work, course, societies and residence, 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.
