What is The Green Team?

The Green Team is a group of students who are striving to create sustainable change at an individual and collective level. This year, we will be creating activities, events and campaigns in-person and with some sessionsrun virtually. Whether you are on or off campus, you can be part of The Green Team activities and campaigns and make a difference!

Our approach to sustainability is intersectional, as the climate emergency is tightly intertwined with inequalities of gender, race and socio-economics. Therefore climate justice = social justice. 

so, what is sustainability?

In 2015, the United Nations set out the Sustainable Development Goals. They address global challenges we collectively face, encompassing climate change, inequalities, poverty, inequality, peace and justice. The goals are interconnected and are equally relevant to both developed and developing countries. The SDGs act as a blueprint for The Students' Union, as we move together to create a better world for all.
