What is Green Impact?
Green Impact provides the opportunity for staff and students to be part of something on a large scale which helps the environment! They can receive recognition for the environmental actions they are already performing, encourage colleagues to think about the environment, and save resources and money – all while having fun.
How does it work?
Green Impact is open to keen members of staff at every university. They are given the option of an online workbook with practical, easy to implement, and no- or low-cost actions to complete, or running a project to focus on a key area where their department has the biggest impact. Individuals organise themselves, focusing on the actions they find most interesting and finding their own ways of implementing them.
