VC to present 2019 UC Sustainability Awards

We’re excited to welcome UC Vice Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae Professor Cheryl de la Rey to present this year’s UC Sustainability Awards!

We’ve also extended the deadline for nominations until Monday 9 September – so get your nominations in quick! There are awards for individuals and teams across 6 categories.

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 are open from now until Monday 9 September with the awards ceremony to be held on Wednesday 2 October in Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, Rehua.
