Help make our University and the world a more sustainable and healthier place

Join us and become part of the change with Green Impact

Green Impact recognises the power of staff and students taking small steps together, every day to help make our University and the world a more sustainable and healthier place to be – because we all work and live here.

How it works

Joining Green Impact is as simple as forming or joining a team of volunteers.

People working or studying in the same area – such as an office, department, floor or building – form a team to tick off steps on a specially designed checklist.

Just make a start – even ticking off only one or two actions can make a difference because it helps integrate sustainable practices into our spaces and raise awareness of sustainability.
