INSPIRE – the Institute for Sustainable Practice, Innovation and Resource Effectiveness – at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, is a virtual institute overseeing the systematic and systemic introduction and embedding of sustainability principles across all the university’s activities through our culture, curriculum, campus and community. Prior to the commitment to establish INSPIRE in 2011, UWTSD had no previous collective history of involvement in the sustainability agenda. Now, INSPIRE has become a multi-award winning project and has initiated a coordinated approach to sustainability across all campuses.
The project has enabled each department within the University to deliver a Sustainability Action Plan, aligned to the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act. These plans outline in high resolution, how the University comes together to deliver on our promises. We are working with external bodies to help them adopt the same system and embed Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act in their organisations.
