NUS is the largest student organisation in the world, with over 600 affiliated students' unions, representing the interests of seven million students in further and higher education in the UK. Our strapline is "student lives better; student voices bolder; student futures brighter".
NUS champions a range of effective, dynamic and far reaching sustainability projects. Green Impact focuses on altering working practices among staff in Students Unions, Universities and Colleges, and further locations in the wider community; Student Switch Off seeks to reduce energy waste in halls of residence by influencing students directly, while Student Eats sees healthy, low-carbon food grown at sites on campuses across the country.
