PALS is UCL’s greenest department second year running

Once again PALS came out with top prize as UCL’s greenest department at the Green Impact Awards Ceremony.  We were awarded its main prize, the Award for Excellence in Sustainability which is a new and its most prestigious award

We were clearly UCL’s greenest department as not only did we complete all tasks in the workbook but we completed four excellence projects.  In comparison the other two teams awarded an Excellence Award completed one project each.  This is an outstanding achievement and testament to the excellent work done by all in the Green Impact Team.

The four excellence projects we completed were as follows:

Its Not Easy Being Green (led by John Draper)

Experimental research on factors influencing the decision to adopt pro-environmental behaviours by UCL community members (led by Jeremy Skipper)

Student competition inviting UCL students to develop innovative uses for technology to get staff and students more engaged with green issues and improve the sustainability of UCL (led by Louise Gaynor)

Evaluating a waste management intervention to promote recycling behaviour change at UCL (led by Caroline Wood and the Centre for Behaviour Change)

We were presented with the attached award which was made from the old Indian Bean Tree in the front quad that was much beloved by our previous Provost.
