Really passionate about sustainability? Why not become an eco-ambassador: organise, promote and encourage sustainability projects to fellow students, working alongside the Sustainability Team across all NTU campuses.
Funding for Projects
The Sustainability Team provide funding for relevant, ambitious and effective student projects. Student teams should be able to evidence the requirements, targets and predicted outcomes of their projects when applying and are welcome to focus on all areas of sustainability including carbon reductions, biodiversity, waste, water and wellbeing. If you believe you have a project that we can help resource please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Examples of Projects we have funded include:
- Hedgehog House building and Wildflower expansion at Brackenhurst Campus- NTU Conservation Society
- Handmade by Meredith- Zero waste handmade clothing company created by NTU Fashion student Meredith Adams
Each year the NTU Sustainability Team also fund a winning "Green Dragon" sustainability focused project at the NTU Enterprise Awards.
Staff Sustainability Ambassadors
Staff at NTU are also invited to become a Sustainability Ambassador, becoming part of a network of staff that have termly meetings with the Sustainability Team to receive updates and provide feedback or advise potential changes.
In May 2022, staff ambassadors were invited to talk to our waste contractor Enva to learn more about waste processes at NTU. Staff in the meeting suggested several ways good waste behaviour could be further highlighted across campuses, and following the meeting were invited to a tour of Enva’s facilities.
