Green Dragons is the first student-led sustainability project at City University London giving teams of students an opportunity to obtain funding for collaborative sustainability projects.
Green Dragons Leaders have developed sustainable habits and leadership, project management, communication, team and civic skills, while more than 4.500 City students and staff have been so far engaged to the project. Green Dragons Leaders have introduced new services in the University such as new recycling services and the first eco-lab currently at a prototype stage, while academics mentor the PhD leaders or provide general support.
An increasing network of community partners supports the leaders based on their individual project needs, while joint-up thinking and new partnerships have been developed at City, i.e. integration of Green Impact with Green Dragons under the newly-designed Sustainability Leaders programme, partnership with the Professional mentoring programme, with ETHOS centre of CSR etc.
