What is the Cambridge Green Challenge?

Virtually every aspect of activity across the University has some environmental sustainability impact. As this agenda is so broad, every individual working or studying at the University has a role to play in taking action to reduce their environmental impact during their time at Cambridge; that’s the Cambridge Green Challenge.

Cambridge is strongest when we work together. That’s true for all aspects of University life and never more so than for the Cambridge Green Challenge; it’s both ours and yours, and there are many ways to be part of making the University a more sustainable place.
