In November 2016 the University’s environmental sustainability engagement programme for staff – 10,000 Actions – was launched. Since then, over 40% of our staff have engaged with the programme compared to the 3% who were involved with previous schemes such as Green Impact and Sustainability Enthusiasts. This signals a real change for the higher education sector and staff engagement around environmental sustainability. Since launching 10,000 Actions the following has been achieved:
- 23,509 actions have been pledged with 4,603 in progress or already completed.
- 351 members of staff who do not have access to a computer attended face-to-face sessions.
- 29 members of staff have completed the evidence required for their official Carbon Literacy certificate.
10,000 Actions is still open so staff who have not yet made an action plan can still do so at 10,000 Actions. If you’ve already made a plan, don’t forget to log back in to update it so we can see how many actions have been completed. You can also let us know what your actions are by using #10000Actions on social media and your action may be turned in to personalised artwork by local artist Hammo.
