Student Opportunities for Sustainability

Our Environmental Sustainability Policy includes our aim to:

“Raise awareness of sustainability among staff, students and the communities in which we work, and develop their skills and knowledge to support sustainability.”

(Targets and examples of recent activity in support of this commitment can be found in our Sustainability Annual Report).


There are a brilliant range of opportunities for Northumbria students to make a difference: develop your knowledge on the Sustainability Ambassadors programme, share your voice through our forums and groups, and get involved with events and volunteering opportunities.
