NUSFund

NUS launch new £5 million Students' Green Fund: ideas for applications wanted.

The NUS are looking to fund large-scale two-year student-led sustainability projects at student unions across England.

This presents an exciting opportunity for UCL students, academics and administrative staff to work collaboratively on ambitious green and ethical initiatives.

The NUS are looking to fund a broad range of projects, but indicate that greening the curriculum, building community partnerships and improving student employability through sustainability awareness are all areas of interest to them.

UCLU are hoping to put together a bid in the next month. If you have any suggestions you would like to share or ideas for a project that you would like to actively collaborate on, please contact Hannah Fair, UCLU Ethics and Environment Coordinator hannah.fair@ucl.ac.uk.
