It is all about sustainability at SUSU with our special Sustainability week. With a range sustainability themed activities taking place at SUSU, this unique event has been organised in a bid to raise awareness and the importance of sustainability.

Sustainability is about ensuring that the decisions we make now do not prevent us from living the way we want to in the future. This can be anything from remembering to switch your lights off to save energy, to deciding whether to buy clothes from a shop that has been accused of using child labour to deciding whether you can you afford to spend your student loan going to the cinema.

The week’s line up of events include:

Monday: Ethical Food & Recycling, Concourse, 11am-2pm

Tuesday: Conservation, Concourse, 11am-2pm

Wednesday: “How my Degree prepared me for world of work in Environmental Consultancy?” By Angela Spinks & Russ Francis, B7/R3007, 1pm-2pm, (run by the Centre for Environmental Sciences)
