We’re working hard now to reduce and even completely discontinue single-use items across NTU, such as straws, cutlery, stirrers, plastic bags, binders and report covers. It’s in direct response to our students’ feedback, and the ambitions of the Pledge are only going to grow as we move it forwards."
Charmaine Morrell - Sustainable Development Manager
As well as finding an opportunity that appeals to a particular passion, our students can choose a timeframe of one day, one term, or one year. It makes their volunteering more relevant, more manageable, and it empowers them."
Stephen Barton - Volunteering Coordinator and Luck King - Community Engagement and Volunteering Officer
