  • Divest-Invest
  • Ethical procurement
  • Events to launch your Green Impact programme

We also develop bespoke training and workshop packages, facilitate sustainability consultations and often speak at events and conferences either as keynotes, guest lecturers or part of panel discussions.

"The ESD workshops delivered by NUS were extremely useful in helping students to break down the meaning of sustainability into manageable and understandable components, allowing course reps to think critically and reflectively about the presence of sustainability within their own course curriculum." Amy Hall, academic representation co-ordinator, UCLan Students' Union
