Sustainability in Liverpool
As a student, there are plenty of ways in which you can get involved in sustainability and we encourage it to become a fundamental part of your student experience. Here a few ways you can get involved:
- Gain experience, make a difference and network with others through volunteering.
- Consider the different development opportunities available at the University.
- Get involved in one of our many events through the Guild of Students’ Green Guild events or events ran by the University’s Sustainability team.
Tips to be more sustainable
Whether you're staff or student, you can take small actions to reduce your carbon footprint - both on campus and at home. Here you will find practical advice and guidance on how to be more sustainable or simply learn a bit more about your environmental footprint.
Sustainable Global Opportunities
Within the Global Opportunities Team we are always looking for ways to encourage students to travel, live and study more sustainably. In Summer 2022, we offered a fully funded summer programme ran by Pagoda Projects, which focused on exactly that. You can read about it here. Please keep an eye on our search tool for similar future opportunities.
Depending on the location of your host country, there are multiple options for travelling more sustainably, particularly in Europe. While flying still remains the most popular option, there are also opportunities to travel via train, coach or boat depending on your destination.
During my time on the Sustainable Global Experience in Amsterdam I discovered a range of new sustainable ways of living and was able to meet likeminded people who I created connections and friendships which wouldn’t have been possible without this experience.Kyra MacKinnon, Philosophy student.
