Sustainability Action Week is taking place from Monday 1 March – Sunday 7 March. This week of activities and events will encourage staff and students to engage with environmental and social issues and make a positive change.
The University’s Sustainability Team has teamed up with UoN Student Union, Nottingham Trent University, NTU Student Union and Nottingham City Council to combine expertise to share advice and guidance for sustainable living and the positive actions we can all take.
We are now in the decade of action, words are no longer enough. That’s why this year we’re going further than ever before to show how we can all make a change, and make a difference.
We’re committed to our University being truly sustainable. We’re already doing a lot, but now’s the time to really step it up. So, a new campaign is being launched to bring together everything sustainability, and encourage and support staff and students alike to be more sustainable at the University.
We’re setting ambitious carbon reduction targets for the University, and we need everyone to join us in getting there. Whether you’re a student or member of staff you can make a difference. Even the smallest actions add up to big impacts. Every sustainable change we make takes us closer to our goal, and change is possible when we all work together.
During Sustainability Action Week we’ll also be launching Green Rewards to show that your sustainable choices matter.
The online platform and mobile app will show you what actions you can take and what impact they have – in return you’ll earn Green Points and the chance to win vouchers for yourself and charity donations for your team.
Our launch webinar, taking place on Tuesday 2 March 2021 at 11am will show you how the platform works and give you a chance to put questions to our Sustainability Team.
Sign up to the launch and join Green Rewards to be entered into a prize draw to win a zero-waste kit worth £30!
