Earlier this year we asked students and staff to pitch their ideas for a project, initiative or activity that would make the campus even more sustainable. We had £1,000 collected through the new 5p charge on disposable cups on campus to fund the best ideas - transforming them into reality.
Thank you so much to all of you who entered your ideas – we had so many great submissions to choose from and the decision wasn’t easy.
Last month, a group of representatives from the Students' Union and relevant University staff came together to choose the ideas that could have the biggest impact.
Following on from that meeting, we can now announce that we have three very deserving winners. The ideas and individuals involved are as follows:
More details about all of these projects will soon be revealed – watch this space!
To get more involved in sustainability at the University, why not join one of our many relevant student societies such as the Plastic Reduction society. Have an idea about how the University community could live more sustainable? We'll be opening another round of bids in the new academic year - and will publish this on UniHub.
