Get involved

Male and female postgraduate students working in the University Park allotment

All staff and students have some personal responsibility for the environmental impact of their actions at the University. We aim to raise awareness of this environmental impact and, working closely with the Students' Union, provide a range of ways for staff and students to get involved in creating a leading green University.


For staff

  • Incorporate sustainability into your teaching programmes
  • Before purchasing new furniture, check to see if any is available on WARPit - our furniture and equipment reuse portal
  • Volunteer as an Environmental Champion for your School or Professional Service
  • Reduce the need to travel. Make use of video conferencing facilities and Skype.
  • Take advantage of the staff travel schemes – Cycle to Workdiscounted travel passes and car share scheme
