UN Sustainability goals
Join Bucks Eco Warrior team
Every year, Bucks Students’ Union takes part in the national environmental accreditation scheme, Green Impact. This project is open to students, Union and University staff across the campus. Throughout the year, we try to improve our environmental performance by progressing through a workbook of actions and implementing as many as possible.
Although it’s called Green Impact it’s not just about planting trees or getting your recycling in order, sustainability is a lot more than that, touching on issues of equality, community, curriculum reform, campaigning and much more. Our vision is that through sustainability initiatives on campus alongside the content of the taught curriculum, students will graduate from higher education being equipped to deal with the global challenges we currently face.
How to get involved?
Do you have a passion or some knowledge in sustainability? Then we need you! This year we want more students to get on board with our 2018-19 plans. Taking part will add to your volunteering hours and help you develop a wider knowledge of green and sustainability issues in your local community.
To join our team you can either join our Facebook group or pop down to the Students' Union offices.
This Impact Assessment was carried out for the start of the 2017-18 academic year and details the Union's most signficant environmental impacts together with a plan as to how we will minimise our impact over the course of the next 12 months.
