'Focus on...' – a year of engagement
Each month in the 2016/17 academic year will have its own ‘Focus on’ theme, tying in with key events in the UEA and international awareness calendars.
The Sustainability Network — staff and student champions from across campus — have fed in their ideas: what do you think we could do?
We’ll be highlighting activities and upcoming events each month.
