Engaging students in the classroom in greening campus operations.
Nottingham Trust University in the UK was one of the first Universities to obtain ISO 14001 certification in 2012 with an Environmental Management System. Students are actively involved in reaching their environmental targets. For example, in 2018 and again in 2019, 100 final year product design students worked with the university’s waste contractor Enva to explore the effectiveness of current recycling methods on campus. Over one day, they took to the campus to collect data, conduct interviews, use surveys and questionnaires, and observe recycling behaviours and use this to propose solutions to the company. The University also hosts student placements to advance sustainable development at the university.
