Environmental Sustainability

Sustainability champions

In 2008 the University launched the sustainability enthusiast network. Following feedback from these enthusiasts and with the launch of 10,000 Actions, the enthusiasts have now evolved into sustainability champions.

Sustainability champions form a University-wide network of individuals who are leading positive change for sustainability in their own areas and in a range of ways. They support the work of the Environmental Sustainability Team by initiating activity in their own areas that really makes a difference on a local level.

If you have an idea that might help to support sustainability in your area then becoming a sustainability champion might be a good way to help you put it into practice. If you are interested in meeting and learning from how others across the University are creating positive change in their own context, this network could offer a great way to keep in touch with others.
