Who are Student Sustainability Architects?

Student Sustainability Architects are part-time paid positions at the Sustainability Service, who provide support for student engagement activities, events, campaigns and initiatives. They take the lead on delivering projects that align with our strategic objectives and also develop their own ideas to increase student participation with sustainability.

Past projects have ranged from increasing sustainability themed dissertations and student representation in political activity, to helping to spread recycling knowledge across Halls of Residence and developing a Sustainability Reps network across faculties and schools.

Main Duties and Responsibilities for Sustainability Architects include:

  • Supporting a core project in line with the University’s Sustainability Strategy. This could include but is not limited to –
    > The Student Citizenship Programme
    > The University wide behaviour change programme
    > Embedding sustainability into the curriculum
  • Promoting the Sustainability Service at Open Days, in faculties and schools and other partner events throughout the year.
  • Supporting the marketing of the service and communication of the Sustainability Strategy by, for example, using social media to publicise events or contributing to our Sustainability Service blog.
  • Supporting student-facing activities when necessary.
  • Assisting with sustainability campaigns and projects when necessary.
