Notes from the UK Student Sustainability Summit

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

I missed the UK Student Sustainability Summit [ SSS15 ] which was part of this year's EAUC conference.  You will find SSS15 video presentations here, and pics of the wider conference here.

There was a strong dose (sex, money and sustainability) of the reliable Sara Parkin at SSS15, with also contributions on the circular economy, nature loss, growing food on campus, how to get Jezza (and others) to drive less, and getting sustainability into the curriculum.  There was something for everybody with presentations from Leeds University Union, Incredible Edible, WWF, Post-Crash Economics, People & Planet, CliMates, and the NUS itself.

This was not the only summit at the conference, as there was also one on sustainability in FE .  However, judging by the contents,  this involved climbing hills rather than mountains.  Meanwhile, I'm told that yet another summit, this time on transformational leadership, which had overseas contributors, was as much about campus bike sheds as institutional leadership.
