Green Impact is our flagship programme for staff engagement, providing practical ways to develop your knowledge across a broad range of environmental issues with a healthy dose of fun and competition thrown in.
It also gives staff valuable training opportunities to develop communication, leadership and motivation skills as well as acquiring skills in environmental auditing. Anyone with an interest in improving their work environment can start their own team. There may already be a team in your building - contact us if you are unsure and we can point you in the right direction. With our support you can become involved in the Green Impact programme and join a network of likeminded people across the university.
