Nottingham Trent University (NTU) and Nottingham Trent Students Union are jointly hosting the NTU Sustainability Summit 2021 as part of our Campaign for COP26. The conference is open to students and sabbatical elected officers of NTU. As part of the event, Head of Sustainability Charmaine Morrell and Conor Naughton, President of Nottingham Trent Students Union will be discussing topics included in the UN's Climate Change Conference COP26.
The day will include key-note speakers and themed workshops on topics such as the climate emergency, biodiversity and fast fashion. There will also be a panel consisting of local organisation representatives who will give insight into their work towards sustainability across the city.
The conference will enable students to share ideas and discuss practical ways to effect change and take action at their universities and organisations. Attendees will learn about COP26’s importance and initiatives in the local area and beyond, whilst focusing on the practical actions we can all take to 'think globally and act locally.'
A vegan lunch will be provided during the day to attendees. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
