Environmental Sustainability

Teaching and learning

Ensuring the sustainability of our planet is the biggest challenge facing humanity in the 21st Century. Sustainability cuts across all subject areas, and requires a truly interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. On these pages you will find information and inspiration to help you embed sustainability in your course or programme, wherever you are in the University.

We host three key teaching initiatives:

Applied sustainability projects

  • These are applied project opportunities set by key organisations that are available to students and staff. They are free to use and can form the basis of any piece of credit or non-credit bearing work. Guidance is available on how to access these projects.

Sustainability seminar series

  • The sustainability seminar series is our flagship forum for engaging academics, students, and PSS staff with key sustainability issues and challenges inside and outside the University. A number are co-organised with leading research institutes and attract a wide range of stakeholders from outside the University.
