NUS is proud to be partnering with Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) for our upcoming Student Sustainability Summit, which takes place in Newcastle this November.
Now in it’s third year, the Student Sustainability Summit - which sees students, staff and SU officers taking action on sustainability and social justice - will take place at Newcastle University Students’ Union on Tuesday 8 November.
The event will feature talks, workshops and networking designed to help you to gain new skills and connect with other people taking action on issues such as curriculum reform, divestment, sustainable food, climate justice and much more.
We have an exciting array of workshops planned, which will cover topics such as:
- ‘Getting your institution’s money out of dirty fossil fuels’
- ‘Careers- a pathway to a sustainable future?’
- ‘Turning volunteers into voters- linking our sustainability volunteering to civic engagement’
- ‘Making money doing good- student enterprise and ethical procurement on campus’
- ‘Running a great sustainability campaign’
- ‘Shaping our education for a just and sustainable future’
Elsewhere during the day, we will also be joined from some great speakers, including Rob Young - NUS Vice President (Society and Citizenship).
Who should attend?
This Summit is tailored for students’ union staff, officers or students with an interest in sustainability. Some unions are also sending their environmental committee.
Our movement has a proud history of fighting on the most important social justice issues of the last 90 years – and sustainability is no exception. Together, we can help our education system become part of the solution to our social, economic and environmental crises.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Summit in Newcastle this November!
Registration for Student Sustainability Summit 2016 closes at midday on Monday 31 October and spaces are limited so make sure you book your place today to avoid disappointment.
