  • Ensure that your department takes part in UCL's Green Impact programme, and help with its delivery. 
  • Use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to help spread awareness about Green UCL events, programmes and initiatives. 
  • Ensure that students are aware of your contact details and role as Student Green Champion.
  • Encourage and gather ideas and feedback from peers on ways of improving UCL’s green performance and to pass these onto the Ethics and Environment Officer or Environmental Sustainability team.
