This year, The Students’ Union chose to partner with Bristol-based organisation, TreeSisters to plant one tree for each student who voted in The Leadership Race elections.
We’re delighted to say we’ll be planting 2000 trees through TreeSisters.
We chose TreeSisters because they take a holistic approach to tackle climate change. They work across Asia, Africa, and South America to empower women and local communities. Their work improves the environment through tree planting, soil restoration, and forest protection.
Vanique Kruger, our re-elected Sustainability Officer for 2021/22 reflected:
“Partnering with TreeSisters for The Leadership Race in 2021 has been a great success. In an unprecedented year, it was a great initiative for students to not only make their voice heard, but also make a positive impact on the environment. By joining forces with the Bristol-based company, we as students had the opportunity to support an organisation that helps empower women all over the world”
Thank you to everyone who voted, you not only made your voice heard but have also voted for a better environment and future.
