Do you want to gain experience relevant to a career in sustainability whilst using your data analysis skills to combat the climate crisis in the local area?

Tim is a local resident, owner of independent café Coffee on the Crescent (@coffeepilgrimuk) and a former University of Leeds Geography student. He is taking urgent action to combat the climate crisis by making a positive sustainable impact on the consumption and waste management practices of businesses and residences in Hyde Park Crescent, the area in which his café is based. Tim hopes to demonstrate how changes in waste management practices can help the City to meet its climate objectives whilst working in partnership with local businesses to implement findings.

Tim is looking to work with a University of Leeds student for up to 100 hours on this project and objectives will include:

  • Research the waste requirements of the businesses on Hyde Park Crescent; this will include data collection and analysis of results from each business;
  • Conduct a cost-benefit analysis of options which promote more sustainable waste disposal options;
  • Investigate the ways in which changes in waste collection process can lead to an improvement of the external communal areas within the Crescent; and
  • Demonstrate ways in which changes in waste management can help to meet City climate objectives on resource efficiency and single-use plastic reduction, implementing learnings of the University’s #2023PlasticFree programme.

Previous experience of undertaking cost-benefit analyses along with data analysis skills would be beneficial.
