Sustainable UCL

The award-winning sustainability programme Reduce the Juice: Connect is returning in October. Over the course of the year the programme will consist of 7 sustainability and environment focused webinars that will cover a wide range of topics including greenwashing, sustainable food choices and other topics. At the end of each webinar a challenge will be issued, and students and staff who complete a certain number of challenges will earn a University of London issued Sustainability Advocate Award, acknowledging a commitment to sustainability. Find out more about this opportunity below.

The climate crisis is affecting us all, but the severity of its effects are not spread justly. Those who contribute the least to environmental degradation are experiencing its effects most severely. 

In this webinar, Reduce the Juice will be discussing how this is a consequence of social and economic factors, the institutional and structural constructs that exacerbate this problem. They will take a global view and recognise that this can mean different things across the globe, but also draw on specific case studies that highlight this injustice. Additionally, they will put the sustainability and environmental sector under the microscope and discuss why minorities are so poorly represented in this area in the UK.

Join the conversation about how we can incorporate sustainability and climate action into our daily lives, and find out how you can receive the University of London’s Sustainability Advocate Award by taking part in their monthly challenges.
