HIGHLY COMMENDED: Sustainability Champion - STAFF - Dr Amanda Slevin, Queen’s University Belfast
When I joined Queen’s University Belfast (QUB), I identified a clear need for innovative approaches to teaching, learning, research, and public engagement on pressing socio-ecological issues.
Since 2018, I have instigated key partnerships with peers, students and civil society groups to co-design and deliver impactful sustainability projects within and beyond the University.
Far exceeding requirements of my fixed term employment, my efforts as a sustainability champion concentrate on three distinct strands which produce wide-ranging benefits: 1. New formal teaching and learning initiatives (e.g. initiating QUB’s first interdisciplinary module on sustainability, climate change and just transition); 2. Innovations in non-formal teaching, learning and public engagement (incl. ‘Creating our Vision for a Greener Future’, an exciting staff-student collaboration with benefits for QUB and wider society) and 3. Activities to advance sustainability and climate action research and practice (I am PI for ‘Pathways for Sustainability’ research and I chair the multi-stakeholder Climate Coalition NI).
