    Swansea Law Team Wins an Environmental Award

    A team of staff and students from Swansea Law School have gained a Bronze Award for environmental sustainability presented by pro-vice chancellor Iwan Davies.  Swansea University is the first in Wales to take part in the Green Impact Scheme to support environmental management in the institution.  The scheme is entirely voluntary and the School was one of only seven departments across the university to gain a Bronze Award.  It was also the only team in which students themselves played a central role.    


    Green Impact Award


    The winning Swansea team was led by Dr Victoria Jenkins and fellow staff members Dr George Leloudas and Trish Rees.  The student members were Madeleine Botham, Leo B-Taylor, Lara Hooper, Rachael James, Daniel Lock, Kyriakos Spiliopoulos and George Williams.  These are all Level Three students who are following Victoria Jenkins module in Planning and Nature Conservation Law.  They were all keen environmentalists, but also welcomed the opportunity to enhance their employability skills– not least with respect to team-working.

    The team was required to undertake a series of tasks relating to energy use, sustainable travel, procurement and recycling.  Their efforts have resulted in much higher profile for these activities within the School and gained great support and co-operation from other staff members, particularly the administrative staff.  The School will continue to support this initiative and will be recruiting a new team of students in the next academic year.
