UC sustainability Awards return

For the first time in 3 awards logo smallyears, the Sustainability Office will once again host the UC Sustainability Awards as part of Ecoweek 2016. The Sustainability Awards recognise the efforts of our university community to improve the world around us. This can be through research projects, community initiatives, departmental resource efficiency leadership or anything else that demonstrates a willingness and ability to make our place that bit greener.

Holding these Awards is important because not only does it recognise people for work that otherwise often goes unnoticed, but it also raises the profile of sustainability activities in our community and demonstrates just how much of this great work is happening here. The winners will be selected by an independent judging panel made up of sustainability professionals outside of the university, and a representative from the UCSA.

Nominate a mate or a staff member

Know someone at UC doing great things for sustainability? Nominate them for a Sustainability Award. Feel free to nominate more than one person. This can be:

  • Student or staff research projects?
  • Resource efficiency initiatives?
  • Community involvement?
  • Other initiatives?

Nominations are open from 1 August – 31 August.  Download the nomination form here.

Awards ceremony

The awards ceremony is held at the conclusion of our annual UC Eco Week on Friday 23 September 2016, from 5.30pm – 6.30pm in Undercroft 101. The Awards will be presented by the UCSA President James Addington.
