A Green GSU


At GSU we are committed to minimising our impact on the planet and maintain sustainable practices in everything we do

In October 2019, the GSU Student Assembly voted to ask the University to declare a climate emergency and for the University and Union sustainability strategies to consult with students in the process of creating them.

This call to action aims at encouraging the University to take action and speed up its efforts at becoming carbon neutral (having no carbon footprint often through carbon offsetting). Niel Lewis is the GSU Officer leading on the work to support the University Sustainability Team for 2020/21.

 

 


A message from GSU Officer Niel

 

“We can do great things when we work together to make a real change. We have to question ourselves as individuals and as an organisation. Are we as green as we could be? Now is a great time to be passionate about sustainability as we can focus on how we change the world, starting at Greenwich”.

Green Gown Awards


Eco-Team Greenwich is a collaboration between staff and students at Greenwich

The Green Gown Awards Team had this to say about the Eco Team: 'We really like the process of discussing issues of importance followed by considered action, as well as the balanced collaboration of the EcoTeam. And such a breadth of fantastic activities have been run as a result!  It would be great to see this developed for future applications, to include evidence of long-term impact, and how the activities are creating behaviour change.'

You can connect with the Eco-Team on Facebook and Instagram.
