VP Sports and Health

Hey! My name is Joshua Edje and I am your VP Sports and Health.

I’ve just graduated from UWE Bristol with an Aerospace degree. I love football and sports in general, and see playing football as a therapeutic activity. I want the opportunity to use my love for sports to provide the best sporting experience for UWE Bristol students.

Earlier this year, we invited all UWE Bristol students to take part in our annual Sustainability Survey and share their awareness, perceptions and recommendations, on how we can make UWE greener. An amazing 927 students took the time to complete the survey and we have been digesting your responses, in order to take on-board your suggestions and make a positive change. Here is a summary of what students said about sustainability at UWE.
