The committee

The Ethical and Environmental sub-committee was created to invest more focused time and effort into creating substantial change within the areas of ethical activism and sustainability. This committee meets twice a semester and is made up of six elected student reps and three student officers. All of these committee members are elected by the entire student body and work together to create the change that students want to see. Committee members from relevant societies are also invited to nominate a representative for their soceity on the committee. Relevant societies are identified and emailed at the start of each academic year.

Over the 2018-19 academic year, the committee is looking forward to:

  • Examining ways to reduce water waste, particularly looking at the new building being built on campus
  • Investigating the use of green flats across campus and how these can be better promoted and implemented
  • Planning Go Green week in February
  • Raising the profile of the committee and its works, encouraging all students to get involved
