From reports I have sought, UWE Bristol is on course to be near to net-Zero by 2025, but I monitor this closely. I have raised this at Board of Governors, specifically around making sure staff are trained well enough to make this a reality. I am involved regularly with the sustainability board, and in conversation with the Assistant VC environemnt and sustainability.

UWE has achieved Hedgehog Friendly Campus gold accreditation! I and other SU staff mobilised quickly in December to make this happen, making sure that the grounds team at UWE had what they neded for their submission. Litter pickers are now avaialble from all SU offices/receptions, and events planned. This accreditation also means that UWE campuses are friendly to much wildlife, as if its friendly to hedgehogs it tends to be freindly to all wildlife. Additionally, I have attended and promoted the community garden on Frenchay and had discussions with the library about in-door plants.
 

Ensure every student has access to the support that is promised by UWE

looking to get feedback from students about their supot and what they were promised.
7 Feb 22
I have established a project with the university to deal with this. The aim of this project is to gain insight on the issue of wellbeing support (including financial etc.), come up with recommendations, and action the ones we can immediately. The project has had two project meetings so far, and will be soon gathering quality information to make access easier.

Whilst there are still issues around accomodation I do not belive a rent strike would be the best way forward currently. We are in conversation with the directorate and accommodation on a regular basis.
7 Feb 22
I've been working on various accomadation issues since coming into post, including a crisis of homeless students and widepsread maintenance issues on a campus accomadation. At time of writing, a rent strike has not been required as I have been able to achieve satisfactory results without one.
