Students share and shape their campus showcasing sustainability

Bringing together academics across all University of Liverpool faculties as well as representatives from the Liverpool Guild of Students, the University Estates team and the Centre for Lifelong Learning, this truly collaborative project gave students the opportunity to share and apply their knowledge of sustainable development in a real world scenario.

Using their own campus as a living laboratory, undergraduate students studying Environmental Science, Biological Science, Engineering and Management, using a cross-disciplinary approach, were tasked with proposing recommendations as to how their University can incorporate sustainable principles and design into its campus developments.

This project has all the elements of an innovative, distinct and successful ESD project including application and sharing of sustainable development concepts from a variety of disciplines to create a vision for a positive University of Liverpool campus and wider region that gives students, staff and local partners the opportunity to collaborate and build meaningful relationships.
