Greenlines is the University of Cambridge’s sustainability newsletter. The newsletter is issued monthly and is primarily aimed at staff, although we encourage anyone interested to sign up. Greenlines provides information about all things sustainable going on around the University – from the construction of new buildings, to the projects going on in departments or Colleges, to events and opportunities.

Teaser Article: This should be between 100 and 200 words and could be a description of an upcoming event, research opportunity or job vacancy.

Summary article: This should be between 300 and 500 words. It could be a description of sustainability initiatives or a recap of a successful recent event. 

Deep dive: This should be a longer form article, but no more than 1500 words. It could be an in depth article about a certain sustainability topic, a resource pack or a set of guidlines. It should also include a leading image (dimensions detailed in the template). 

The Sustainability Team and Cambridge Zero Mailing List 

We have a joint mailing list that will be used on an ad hoc basis to share information about our programmes, events, paid opportunities and other news relevant to students interested in sustainability at the University.
