Please contact Mel Kee with queries or for more information.
Green Impact for staff
Key dates this year are:
Audit date: 6th May 2020
An awards ceremony will be held in May following the audits, to recognise the achievements of staff and students who take part.
The Green Impact portfolio (PDF, 2,645kB) showcases the scheme and highlights the achievements made by previous teams.
Teams can request Green Impact Project Assistant to help with their actions. Please contact Mel Kee to find out more about this.
Green Impact supports the University's PositveWorking@Bristol initiative. Find out more at PW@B.
Green Impact for students
Students can get involved in Green Impact by becoming a Green Impact Project Assistant or a Green Impact Project Auditor.
Help staff teams to achieve their Green Impact Awards and gain practical experience and important skills in communication and project management, as well as contributing towards sustainability within University departments.
Once Green Impact workbooks are submitted, workspaces are audited to ensure that all actions ticked in the workbook have been carried out. Student auditors will receive certified NUS training and guidance to carry out the audits, and will gain invaluable, hands-on skills in communications, leadership and environmental auditing whilst helping bring about real change.
Audits will take place on 6th May, with a mandatory training session before that.
Please note: These opportunities are not currently open. We will recruit volunteers next term (Jan-May 2020).
Keep an eye on our Volunteering webpage for more information about these opportunities.
Sponsor the awards
They supported the Green Impact Awards by:
- sponsoring the scheme through a donation of £200-£500
- providing prizes for our winning teams
- providing freebies for "goodie" bags we give to winning teams at the awards ceremony.
- sponsoring one of our annual special awards: Environmental Hero, Community Action, Student Leadership, and the Green Impact Proudest Achievement Award for £500.
Sponsoring Green Impact provides an opportunity to contribute to your corporate social responsibility objectives, exposes you to a wider university community, associates you with a UNESCO award winning program, and shows a continuing interest in sustainability within Bristol following the 2015 Green Capital year. For more information on how your organisation could help us run the scheme, please contact Mel Kee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
