Building knowledge and understanding of sustainability is fundamental to our teaching strategy here at Leeds, and we are committed to giving opportunities to students to take part in activities to promote sustainability.

The annual Student Sustainability Research Conference allows students from across Leeds to showcase their sustainability-themed research, projects, performances and installations.

We use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to drive our work in sustainability, and research from students at all levels (undergraduate and postgraduate) and across all disciplines with a link to the SDGs is welcome at the conference.

Applications to present at the 2023 Student Sustainability Research Conference are open now until 11 December 2022. The conference takes place in person on 22 February 2023, and for the first time applications are open to students from 12 higher education institutions across Yorkshire.

The 2022 Student Sustainability Research Conference took place on Wednesday 8 June, with live online presentations alongside an in-person poster exhibition in Parkinson Court. The theme of Together For Our Planet was the driving force behind the COP26 climate change conference and the University's Climate Plan.

The 2021 conference was the first to take place entirely online, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The theme was No One Left Behind, and the presentations reflected and contributed to promoting elements of social equity and their intersections with climate and each other.
