Get Involved in Sustainability Related Events, Activities and Initiatives

At Swansea University we offer students, staff and the local community opportunities to get involved in our work to improve practices across our campuses and help us continue to lead the way in developing a more sustainable future for all. We regularly hold working groups across the year on a variety of sustainability topics including carbon management, Fairtrade, environmental management and waste. If you wish to get involved in shaping sustainability at the University, register via the link below.
