Become a member of the sustainability network


Sustainability Champions are our ambassadors of environmental issues. Staff can be part of a team, or the key point of contact between the Sustainability Team and School staff, students and senior management.

Sustainability Champions work with Estates to support environmental initiatives across the campus.

With ongoing Estates support, staff become part of an active network who share knowledge and best practice. They provide a local focus for environmental and energy issues and help encourage friends and colleagues to make small changes to everyday practices that will collectively make a difference across our campus.


Become a Sustainability Champion

We are looking to have representation from across every School and administrative department.


What will I have to do?

As a Sustainability Champion you will be supported in whatever area you’re most interested in. This could include:

  • Offering advice and support to staff and students
  • Providing feedback to Estates on energy or environmental issues
  • Running or helping to set up events for your School or team
  • Acting as an information point in your office or lab.

This role can take about 2-4 hours of time a month, but can be achieved with more or less commitment too. Volunteers are supported by us and will also join an active network who share ideas, practices and information from across the University.

If you are interested in joining the network please contact the Sustainability team and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

Sustainability Champions will always be looking for more people to get involved and help out so please get in touch, ask any questions and offer a helping hand.
