Rich Gorman & Laura Williams
NUS Wales (in partnership with TYF) have been awarded a £68,000 contract substantially funded by the Welsh Government and managed through HEFCW for Live Greener – a 12 month project putting Welsh students at the heart of the sustainability agenda.
“We have recently been updated on the success of the NUS in getting students and staff involved in reducing energy use […] involvement in programmes such as these can both increase student confidence in the organisation, and help to educate them in energy use for the long term in their own homes and professional lives.”
Previous Minister for Education & Skills
"This funding is hugely important to NUS Wales because it means students in Wales will be central to finding solutions to the climate challenge which we face. 6000 students will be actively engaged giving 9000 hours which will lead to real impacts like significant reductions in the electricity and water used in halls, and in carbon emissions.”
“But the aims go further than that. It’s not just about the next year. It’s about making sure sustainability remains a priority of these six institutions and giving students the skills and knowledge to build a sustainable, low-carbon future - to live greener.”
-Stephanie Lloyd, NUS Wales President
