Sheffield Students’ Union have consulted environmental student groups to identify 12 priority sustainability actions we believe will best contribute to a sustainable University of Sheffield. Now we need your support!
‘Our Student Manifesto for a Sustainable University of Sheffield’ calls on the University to incorporate these actions in our into its Sustainability Strategy. For example, we’re calling for a Zero Carbon target to avoid catastrophic climate change, renewable energy, support for local businesses, Education for Sustainable Development in courses, and a Head of Sustainability to drive and coordinate all of this work. You can read the full Manifesto here.
We now need as many students as possible to add their support for it.
SU Development Officer, Megan McGrath said: ‘We already know that students rank sustainability as the most important global issue. Time after time we hear in surveys that you want the University to include more sustainable development in both courses and on campus. It’s vital that we seize this opportunity and make our voice heard, as this is the generation that will need the skills and confidence to tackle the big global challenges we face and secure a sustainable future.’
