Green Champions

Green Champions group
Some of UCL's brilliant Green Champions

Green Champions are a network of staff and student volunteers. They work together to make UCL a greener place to work and study. The role is flexible and designed to suit staff and students' interests, priorities and schedules. At its core, it's all about being enthusiastic about green issues in departments and working to help improve UCL’s environmental impact.

If you'd like to become a Green Champion in your department, or if you have any questions about the role, please contact Lead Green Champion Janet Hope (details below). You can also sign up to the Green Champions mailing list to get updates and information about the work of Green Champions across the university. You can also join the UCL Green Community Facebook group for more informal updates and discussion from sustainability stakeholders from across the university.   

Become a staff Green Champion

After recent changes to the UCL academic manual, it is now stipulated that all departments should have a member of staff charged with environmental responsibilities. And having a Green Champion is an excellent way to achieve this. Staff Green Champions support UCL’s environmental sustainability agenda and help improve UCL’s green performance.
