Deadlines for the Making a Difference Awards, and 10,000 Actions

(12 January 2017)

With a closing date of 1 February, there are less than three weeks to go before the deadline for entering the Making a Difference Awards. 

The Awards are open to all staff and students at the University. Individuals or teams can submit an entry for themselves, or be nominated by a third party. The Awards celebrate and raise awareness of how individuals and teams across the University are making a difference to the social and environmental wellbeing of our communities and wider society. 


You have until 31 January to participate in the 10,000 Actions project. By creating your personalised action plan through 10,000 Actions, you’ll be given some inspiration for actions you can take at work related to sustainability. 

During January, local artist Hammo will choose a 10,000 Actions tweet every week to illustrate. By sharing your action on Twitter using #10000Actions, you could also win some personalised artwork. 

  • You can also follow the University’s engagement with environmental sustainability at @UoMSust and share your actions using the hashtag #10000Actions on Twitter or Instagram.
