Humanities wins at Green Impact Awards

(25 November 2015)

Green Impact is a national environmental accreditation scheme which supports teams of staff or students to improve their environmental performance. It involves teams progressing through a workbook of actions, implementing as many as possible in their own area.

During 2014-15 seven teams from the Faculty of Humanities made positive changes within their areas and these were recognised at the recent Green Impact Awards Ceremony.

Many congratulations are due to the following teams:

Silver award

  • Humanities Human Resources
  • School of Social Sciences
  • School of Environment, Education and Development Arthur Lewis Building Green Impact

Bronze Award

  • Teaching and Learning Languages Team
  • Precinct Library (Alliance MBS)
  • The Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI)
  • Faculty of Humanities Administration - Crawford House

All existing teams are encouraged to continue their positive actions during 2015-16 and it would be great if new teams are also set up. Teams can be based around discipline/division/function areas, buildings, Schools or just a group of likeminded individuals interested in making a difference. Further details can be found on the Environmental Sustainability webpages.

If you are interested in starting a new Green Impact Team or developing your existing one, then support is available from the Faculty, for example to fund a green lunch or coffee morning to build interest. Please speak to Claire Lloyd for further information.
