Environment and Energy

 

Looking ahead

We regularly run 'Spotlight On' months, with events, articles and news focusing on a particular topic, where we encourage staff and students to get involved in tackling particular environmental and sustainability issues in their places of work and study. Upcoming 'spotlight on' months are detailed on this page. We also observe a number of the national and international days that raise awareness of environmental issues. Travel events are hosted throughout the year, please get in touch if you would like to host a cycle safety, cycle maintenance or Dr Bike session on your site.

What to expect from 'Spotlight on' months

During 'spotlight on' months, we'll shift the focus to one key topic throughout one intensive period packed with information, advice and support. In our Greenlines newsletter, we'll have information and articles on the 'spotlight on' theme. We'll also encourage Environment & Energy Coordinators and Green Impact teams to get involved by running their own events, and will send out ideas and tips on doing this via a 'bi-weekly digest'. We also produce posters and guidance on each topic, which can additionally be found through our dedicated 'spotlight on' web pages. Each of these contain a host of tips, ideas and further resources aimed at tackling these important issues:
