HIGHLY COMMENDED: Sustainability Champion - STAFF - Grounds & Gardens Team, University of Leicester
Giving bees a chance, we have enhanced campus and community engagement activities; delivering partnered interactions, heightened wellbeing connectivity, and focused on sustainable biodiversity initiatives.
The University of Leicester’s commitment to equality and diversity has been wholly embraced by the Gardens & Grounds Team who consistently go way above their planned and deliverable maintenance activities; with a creative, enthusiastic commitment to sustainability and biodiversity that helped propel our urban campus to achieve first place in the THE Impact Rankings for Goal 15: Life on Land.
By engaging with staff, students, and the community (their Instagram account is buzzing), the team have created an urban oasis for all species that is a long way removed from the manicured lawns we expect from University campuses. Tapestry lawns, hedgehog tracks, tree planting with schools and a commitment to native species means that our research-led green spaces provide maximum carbon sequestration, species diversity and an altogether bee-autiful campus.
