What is The Green Team?

 

 

The Green Team are a group of students that have a shared interest in sustainability and are passionate about exploring ways to create positive change on campus and in the Bristol Community. Being part of the Green Team allows you to be involved with an exciting programme of events, training, activities, talks, workshops and volunteering. 
 
There are many ways to get involved with The Green Team as the programme provides a variety of opportunities for you with varying levels of commitment and knowledge.  We have something for everyone:
 
  • Learn more about sustainability;
  • Get involved in a pre-existing project;
  • Gain funding and support for championing your own student change project. 
  • Join in with activities and volunteering
 
 

so...what is sustainability?

A common definition of sustainability has been written by the Brundtland Commission: 'development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.'
 
It is clear that our world has not acted with this mindset in previous generations. With poverty, injustice, inequality and mass environmental destruction in our world, how can we work to develop a healthier society, economy, and planet? How can we break these issues down into manageable segments? 
 
The UN Sustainability Development Goals are a roadmap for a brighter global future. There are 17 goals, tackling all elements of sustainability, from climate change to inequalities to education. These goals act as a blueprint for the work of The Green Team, as we move together to create a better world for all.
