There are a variety of ways you can get involved.
A key commitment within our environmental sustainability policy is to provide opportunities to get involved in sustainability. For students, this will help you to build your CV, gain additional skills and enhance your employability. By participating in sustainability initiatives, staff will be able to learn new skills, get directly involved in improving our environmental performance and have fun!
There is something for EVERYONE with loads of different ways of getting involved.......whether you want to just dip your toe in, have a dabble or dive right in!
Have a “Dip” – come along to one of our events. This could be just for you if you want to do something small, are just developing an interest in these issues and want to come along for a bit of info, or you don't have the time to give for any further involvement
Have a “Dabble” – participate in an event, join a student society, volunteer for a day or share your ideas with the sustainability team. This could be just for you if you have a bit more of an interest in sustainability and want to get more involved with a little bit of commitment.
“Dive” in – you could lead on a sustainability project, apply to join one of our sustainability committees, become a Green Impact auditor or volunteer on a regular basis. We can help tailor your involvement to meet your personal aspirations, just drop us a line.
