Event description

Description

The Sustainability Awards, which have been running since 2010, offer an opportunity for staff and students to contribute towards the University of Edinburgh becoming more socially responsible and sustainable.

Each year we come together to recognise the contribution of all participants, inspire others to take action, and to celebrate the University of Edinburgh's commitment to sustainability.

This event is broken into two parts - an awards ceremony and a workshop. you are welcome to attend one or both parts, depending on interest. You can make your choice when registering via Eventbrite.

Awards Ceremony 2018

Staff and students are invited to join us on Thursday 29th March to celebrate the winners’ achievements and meet with others from around the University who share our commitment to social responsibility and sustainability issues.

Recipients will be presented with locally-crafted and sustainably-sourced trophies for the following categories:

  • Office Awards (gold, silver and bronze)
  • Lab Awards (gold, silver and bronze)
  • Student Awards, recognising student groups that have delivered impactful projects across the university campus, and student residences that have worked embedded sustainable practises in their halls.
  • Special Awards, recognising the best staff led sustainability projects in energy, sustainable labs, sustainability impact, innovation for sustainability, and outstanding contribution

Post Ceremony Workshop

This year we will run an optional workshop after the ceremony during which attendees will have the chance to join two 30 minutes facilitated discussion groups. The groups will be a mixture of sharing best practice, discussion and information.

Topics include

  • SRS Strategy
  • Awards - Student Engagement
  • Awards - Staff Engagement
  • Practical ways to implement zero by 2040
  • An introduction to the SDGs
  • SRS Learning and development


Lunch will be provided from 12.30pm.
