A new study lead by Prof Julienne Stroeve says year-to-year forecasts of the Arctic’s summer ice extent are not yet reliable.
The UCL Green Community includes all staff and students who are passionate about the environment and want to make a difference.
Earth Sciences has its own green team whose aim is to find ways to make it easier and more effective for us all to be greener/more sustainable within the Earth Sciences department. They feed into the rest of the UCL Green Community, sharing ideas and initiatives across the different departments and the University as a whole.
Green News: UCL Green Impact Competition
Green Impact is a competition in which teams complete
an online workbook, which lists different environmental actions that
departments are encouraged to carry out. Bronze and Silver awards are
given out according to the number of actions successfully completed and the
Gold award will be won by the top scoring team in UCL. Please see the online workbook and supporting information on the Green UCL website.
UCL currently has 13 Green Impact teams. We would like to put together an ES team. From the UCL webpage: "The successful completion of the criteria will require a team effort, and it is quite likely that teams will include Departmental Administrators, Estates Liaison contacts and departmental Green Champions. However there is no limit on the size of team that a department can field and it will be easier, and more fun, if more members of the department are involved. This is especially the case for departments with students!"
Please contact the ES green team if you would like to be involved.
