As part of the University’s commitment to increasing student engagement, and ensuring sustainability is relevant to all students, we employ four students each year to work alongside the team to increase our engagement within the student body.
The Sustainability Architects are here to support the implementation of our strategic aims and our commitment to increase awareness of sustainability with students on campus.
The four Sustainability Architects in 2015/2016 were, Amy, Will, Ileyas and Shara. Each of them were focusing on a different section of student engagement, including developing a sustainability rep role, increasing sustainability themed dissertation opportunities across all schools, strengthening student voices through political and governance activities, and promoting increased recycling and reuse rates within Halls of Residences.
Keep up to date on the architects progress and experiences with the team via our blog. The architects also attended student facing events, such as open day talks, presentations and more to discuss sustainability at the university and how students can get involved. If you would like involvement from the student architects at a talk or a student facing event please contact us.
