Sustainability at Welcome and Refurbished Bike Sales

This year the sustainability team will have a stand at the Welcome Villages on University Park, Jubilee and Sutton Bonington during Welcome Week.

  • Come and talk to us about sustainability at the university, Green Rewards and how you could become a Student Sustainability Ambassador.
  • Have a go at Eco Play Your Cards Right! Challenge a friend (or one of the Sustainability Team!) to see who knows the most about the carbon footprint of everyday activities.
  • Create a wildflower seed bomb with the grounds team and learn about biodiversity on our campuses. Help us to increase biodiversity by making campus a little wilder and encouraging insect life to thrive.
  • We will also be joined on some of the days by Louis from Enva, the university’s waste contractor. ‘Waste’ some time with him and have a go at the Recycling Quiz to win a prize.
  • Dopple will be with us at UP and Jubilee. Dopplle is a platform which promotes sustainable living through clothes swapping to help reduce textile waste. Have a chat with the UoN student behind the app, Sam, and find out more about sustainable fashion.

Full schedule below.
