Thomas’ year in post volunteering as the part-time Sustainability Officer at The Students’ Union (SU) at UWE enabled him to connect communities, students and the University to drive forward student action.
Through his leadership style – inspiring and engaging his fellow students as well as members of the Union and University itself – he has created a legacy of an elected student-led Sustainability Committee and the creation of several sustainability related policies.
Through successful stakeholder engagement, Thomas has connected students, staff, and the local community around green projects – embodying the values of sustainability. His demonstrable passionate commitment to achieving numerous key initiatives can be evidenced through being awarded both the ‘Green Volunteer of the Year’, Bristol 2015/Bristol Natural History Consortium, March 2016 as well as ‘Sustainability Student of the Year 2017’, Celebrating UWE Bristol Talent.
