Sustainable UCL


Sustainable Education

UCL's Sustainability Strategy makes the commitment that every student will have the opportunity to study and be involved in sustainability by 2024. 

Why is Sustainable Education important? 

A report published in 2021 by Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS) found that 91% of students agree their place of study actively incorporate and promote sustainable development and that 84% would like to see sustainable development activity actively incorporated and promoted through all courses.*

What is UCL doing? 

We work to ensure that UCL education is a sustainable education across the curriculum, campus, and community.
