The King’s Climate Action Network (CAN) is an open, interdisciplinary forum bringing together people from the King’s community who are passionate about climate action. It was created in October 2020 to co-create the university’s approach to climate action and now has almost 400 members.
It focuses on solutions to reduce our carbon emissions, while also maximising our positive impact on climate action across areas including Zero Carbon Estate, Procurement and Waste, Travel, Responsible Investment, Students & Education, Community & Engagement, and Zero Carbon Research.
This year, the CAN has formed teams of students and staff who are working on 5 main projects:
- Energy Champions Scheme: develop a programme to engage students and staff in energy saving at King’s, including carrying out actions, analysing data, and running energy saving campaigns
- King’s Cycle Bank: set up a scheme to identify abandoned bikes at King’s and donate them to students, complemented by events, courses, campaigns, etc.
- Schools engagement: engage with local school audiences by disseminating King’s climate knowledge, e.g. by strengthening ties with Climate Ed or Our Classroom Climate
- Education for Sustainability: develop a strategy to integrate sustainability into all modules and courses at King’s by engaging with academics
- Supply Chain Sustainability: reduce supply chain emissions (our largest source of emissions!) through e.g. improved data analysis and supplier engagement events
During this showcase, you can find out more about and engage with these projects and the CAN’s achievements overall.
Help us transform the King’s Climate Action Network manifesto into a real piece of art!
