Projects and Campaigns

The Sustainability team are running loads of projects, campaigns and events throughout the year! Our projects aim from upper level institutional changes, in projects like EcoCampus, to smaller scale behaviour change campaigns like Student Switch Off.

If you have any event ideas, think we should be doing something differently, or think we could be doing something better, drop us an email at! Additionally, you can get involved with student or community led events on the Sustainability Team's facebook page!
