Positive change – UC Sustainability Office

ENGS4379_Mailchimp_BNR (2)Did you know that UC has a Sustainability Office?

We are an on-campus hub for individuals and groups that are interested in creating positive change and promoting sustainable practices within UC and the wider community.

We organise events (e.g. Ecoweek with lots of sustainability focused events); we communicate pathways for change (like, promoting fair trade, sustainable transport, informing staff and students about recycling), and support a network of individuals and working groups across the campus and in the wider community (for instance, we provide input into the campus master plans, and we work closely with the student Eco Clubs). We also organise exciting projects, like the compositing coffee cups trial for instance, or Dr Bike.

Our whole team is passionate about sustainability. Jane looks after the Community Gardens at UC (with a group of students), Katie is  focused on waterways, tiny houses and fair trade, Matt is finding more and better ways to look after cyclists and handle waste (think worms and composting), and Puck works on different sustainability projects and does the communications side of things.
