From 10,000 to 50,000 Actions

In 2016 we launched 10,000 Actions, the biggest environmental sustainability initiative in the UK higher education sector, with 50% of our 10,000+ staff accessing the platform.

In autumn 2021, we’re launching a revamped 50,000 Actions that expands the platform to the whole of our student body.
