Directorate for the Student Experience


Getting involved

Sustainability Champions
Sustainability champions form a University-wide network of individuals who are leading positive change for sustainability in their own areas and in a range of ways. If you are interested in meeting and learning from how others across the University are creating positive change in their own context, this network could offer a great way to keep in touch with others.
