WINNER: Sustainability Champion - STUDENT - Charlotte Evans and Millicent Sutton, University of St Andrews

We - Charlotte and Millicent - have gone beyond the normal requirements of students to create and initiate a sustainability module, now compulsory for all 11,000 students, by the University of St Andrews. TESA inspires, engages, and supports Environmental and Sustainable Action locally, globally, and practically. The module makes a significant contribution to the environment since reaching out to students – whose scope of actions are large – is determining for a sustainable future.  

We have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and hard work. Our determination has inspired the University’s Environment Team and the Environmental and Sustainability Board, led by Sir Ian Boyd (former UK Gov. Chief Scientific Advisor), to support the initiative.  

TESA is now launched and reaches all students at the University of St Andrews. These students come from around the globe and are the future innovators, politicians, teachers, and leaders of climate action. They will now be well-equipped to drive sustainable change forward. 

Top 3 learnings:

  1. Everyone really can make a difference – if you have an idea, go for it! 
  2. Your passion will drive your project onwards – and probably snowball beyond your initial imagination! 
  3. Plan your time well and encourage others to get onboard.
