Nifty Markets X OpSoc Markets on Sunday

Need something to do this weekend?

Nifty Markets are teaming up with OpSoc to bring you a Thrifty Nifty market from the UC Campus! On Sunday 15 September in Haerae-roa in the sunny Ti Kouka space,  join the fun and shop sustainably at the Nifty Market.

The Thrifty Nifty x OpSoc market is an opportunity where anyone can set up a rack and sell their clothes. The purpose of this event is to motivate shoppers to purchase pre-loved clothing in an effort to reduce textile waste (and to score some quality deals along the way).

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.
