Staff and students are being encouraged to come up with innovative green ideas to improve the University's environmental impact.

The Green Impact Awards were unveiled during the University's annual Sustainability Week (4-8 November).

Led by the National Union of Students' the Green Impact Universities and Colleges scheme is an environmental accreditation programme which helps people improve working environments, positively impact the lives of their students and gain recognition for their efforts.

The scheme will encourage staff and students to think about new ways the University can reduce energy bills and lessen its impact on the environment by competing against each other in teams.

To find out more about registering a team for the Green Impact Awards contact Katrina Henderson by emailing

Staff and students are also being encouraged to take part in an energy saving initiatives competition. The best idea will be implemented on campus and the winner will receive £100 prize, awarded by the Vice-Chancellor at the Green Impact Awards in May 2014.
