Laura Tamjarv (UCLU Green Economy Society): Welcome to the UCLU Green Economy Society!

Our society was established with the aim to raise awareness with students about the process of sustainable developments of economies and to create links between the wider community and university students. We provide a platform to encourage students to develop multidisciplinary knowledge of environmental issues and also a framework in which environmental topics can be discussed. With us you will have a chance to find out more about the environmental industries and careers. Our society also promotes students’ concerns about the role and the future of the environmental sector and its relation to the economy. Our ultimate event of the academic year is the Green Business Forum. The forum brings together experts from a range academic fields, as well as leading figures in industries and members of the government. Our forum is aimed at students who want to find out more about green(ing) businesses and predictions, concerns and plans for the future.
