I'm writing this on the last train from London (last night). Just been to the Guardian University Awards evening (celebrating excellence, creativity and innovation).
Jamie Agombar, the NUS's ethical and environmental manager (and all round sustainability champion), was nominated in the Inspiring Leader category — and he won — beating a whole bunch of high-profile VCs, sub-VCs, Dames and Knights of the Realm into 2nd to 7th place.
This was splendid, not just for Jamie (and the NUS), and for all those students who beaver away day by day in institutions working on sustainability projects, but also for the idea of learning and sustainability in HE. A great outcome for us all, and richly deserved by Jamie. Quite an evening.
