Volunteer as a Green Impact Auditor and help us take on Green Impact Students Unions - an environmental accreditation programme which helps us to be as green as possible. We are proud of our 'Excellent' status which we have held since 2010!

We run a sustainability lecture series throughout the year, once in the autumn and once in the spring. In the past, we’ve talked about post capitalism economics, rewilding and even alcohol impact. Check the events page to see if there are any talks coming up.

Each year societies are able to compete with each other to be awarded the coveted Green Guild Flag. The award is an integral way of demonstrating your society’s commitment to sustainability. Throughout the process your society will receive support from trained assessors ensuring you are doing everything you can, as well as this, the award is a great opportunity to collaborate with other societies for exciting events and activities.

This year there are just 5 easy steps to follow to earn your society the Green Guild Flag:

  1. Take the Pledge: Quite simply take your Green Pledge found here.
  2. Nominate a 'Sustainability Champion’: Pick your very own Green superstar to act as a champion for your society; they will receive support and training throughout the role. The first training is coming up on the 4th October, you can sign up here.
  3. Get Involved in a Green Guild Event: Whether it’s a stall at the Food & Vintage Fair or helping at one of our Green lectures, your society can get involved – and have a great time in the process.
  4. Get Stuck in to a Sustainability Campaign: If you’d like to get involved with one of our campaigns or run one of your own, get in touch with our Green Team here.
  5. Keep Your Events Green: Make sure your events are as sustainable as possible by using the best transport, having vegetarian catering options and recycling. Throughout the year our Green Team will be measuring your societies ‘green-ness’ through evidence you submit so make sure you document all of your efforts.
