This presentation on 'Increasing our Green Impact' was given as part of a morning workshop on Developing Green Champions at the EAUC-Scotland Conference 2015 by Naomi Arnold, Sustainable Behaviours Coordinator at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).

Session Outline

NUS' Green Impact programme has been helping to develop Green Champions at the University of the West of Scotland over the last few years. The key to success? Face-to-face encouragement and ensuring that the programme is communicated in a way that is relevant to staff and their work.


EAUC-Scotland held their third conference on the 17th November 2015, sharing examples, ideas and opportunities for Colleges and Universities working to develop and promote sustainability within their institution.

The conference theme, A Shared Responsibility, highlighted that for effective change sustainability action is not only needed by estates teams, but also academic and support staff, senior management and students, and requires engagement with local and national partners and other further and higher education institutions.
