Last chance to nominate your sustainability hero!

Get those nominations in quick…  Because today is the last day to nominate your sustainability superhero for a UC Sustainability Award! There are awards for individuals and teams across 6 categories, with the awards being presented by UC Vice Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae Professor Cheryl de la Rey.

What are the UC Sustainability Awards?

The Sustainability Awards are all about the recognition and celebration of all things sustainability – both on and off campus. This is a great chance to acknowledge the hard work, innovation and imagination of many of our students and staff who are working hard to make our world a better (and greener) place.

Maybe it’s a sustainable student-led project, academic or post-graduate research, or a green department, team or a staff project? An eco-warrior changing the world?

Get nominating!

Tell us all about them (or yourself) by finding the nomination form and all the info you need here. Nominations close at 5pm Monday 9 September, with the awards ceremony to be held on Wednesday 2 October in Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, Rehua.

Applications open – Momentum Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award

Is your work going to change the world? Have you been working on an innovative idea while studying? Maybe you’ve just launched your disruptive startup?

The Momentum Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognises you for making ‘significant progress developing an idea that can change the world.’ The award provides you with a national platform to spread the word about what you are up to. It will expose you and your idea to leaders in the New Zealand commercialisation and entrepreneurship scene as well as a large pool of potential investors and funders.

You do not need a business to qualify for the award – any significant contributions to innovation and commercialisation will be considered. Anyone who has been a student in the past 12 months is eligible.

Entries close on Wednesday 19 June.

If you are applying for the award then feel free to get in contact with the UC Centre for Entrepreneurship. We would love to help anyone with their application!
