Sustainability in Enterprise - Gather Social
Recent NTU alumni, Amy Young, shares her experience and her aspirations for her graduate placement at Nottingham-based small business, Gather Social.
Sustainability Community Lab
In addition to grant support, eligible Nottingham SMEs can support graduates like Amy to become a sustainability advocate within their organisation through a fully funded early careers development programme, the Sustainability Community Lab.
Amy is enthusiastic about making a difference to the business’ sustainability, describing how climate action is a very real concern for her and her peers. With graduates seeking greener job opportunities, businesses which implement sustainable practices will make themselves more desirable to future cohorts of graduates, supporting their long-term business innovation and growth.
Amy says: “I'm looking to become more aware of my carbon footprint and the business’ impact on the environment. The sustainability workshops will give me the knowledge and the space to learn more about changing the planet for the better.”
The Sustainability Community Lab workshops will enable Amy to learn new soft skills that she can transfer within Gather Social, helping her to discuss, negotiate, and implement topics of sustainability. Ultimately, this allows for the promotion of low carbon growth, helping reduce Gather Social’s carbon emissions whilst strengthening relations with NTU and its stakeholder community.
