Applications for The University of Leeds' annual Student Sustainability Research Conference is open to students across all levels and disciplines from the twelve member institutions of Yorkshire Universities. The conference presents the opportunity for students to be inspired, share their sustainability-related research, and learn from their peers from across the region in a professional conference setting.

We encourage students to present or perform their work in any format. This could include presentations, installations, workshops, posters, focus groups, or demonstrations. The focus is on inspiring, sharing and learning, and research does not need to be fully complete to be shared at the conference.

As we believe that collaboration is crucial when dealing with the climate crisis, the conference brings together students, staff, partners, collaborators, and members of the public to experience the diversity of undergraduate and postgraduate student sustainability research.

We welcome research that addresses any of the six themes: Climate Resilience and Adaptation; Net Zero Carbon; Justice, Equality, and Inclusivity; Protection of Nature and Biodiversity; Education for Sustainable Development and Innovation, Industry and Infrastructure. 

We can't wait to hear your invaluable research. Apply now using the online application form by 23:59 on Sunday 10 December 2023.

See our SSRC24 webpage for more information and application guidance.
