What a year!

What a year it has been! Well, academic year anyway, and that is starting to come to a (scarily!) slow close as exams begin to creep over the horizon…

In September, we happily saw the launch of the Sustainability Hub at the Freshers’ Festival, and over 600 students came to see what was going on! We had loads of fun meeting new students, those that were returning for another year, as well as staff members that we curious to see what we were up to.

We have absolutely loved getting to know all of you that have popped into the Sustainability Hub over the last few months to pick up some free, good quality, second-hand items; get involved with the various upcycling workshops; learn more about cycling in a Scotland or even fix your own bikes; plant seeds and learn how to take care of your plants; or just have a good chat with us! So thanks for coming by J

We must say – none of this could have been done without every single one of our 37 wonderful volunteers. They have worked tirelessly to keep the shop looking presentable; write and translate articles or blogs; weigh and categorise all the kind donations that we received; welcome new students to the campus; help us run different projects, or cover us staff so that we can do our work and eat lunch! As a team, we have been able to do so much with their help and we have certainly enjoyed getting to know each one personally and seeing their skills develop.

To celebrate all of this, we would like to end these with a bang, bigger than the one that we started with!

SAUWS Environment will be hosting ‘Eco-Jam’ on Thursday 24th March 2015, from 5pm. Please come and join us!

This event has been completely organised by student volunteers, and will show case student bands from UWS and a DJ later in the evening. It will be fully catered and guest speakers will also offer their personal experiences of working with the Sustainability team.

If you have any questions, comments or stories that you would like to share, please email sustainability@sauws.org.uk.

We would love to see as many of you as possible and have the opportunity to thank you all for your support!
