Geography Wins Bronze in Green Impact Awards

Posted on 03/11/2015

Huge congrats to the Geography Department on their recent participation, remarkable work and much deserved 'win' in the Green Impact scheme at King's College London.

For King's College London, this was their first year participating in the Green Impact scheme. Nearly 30 teams from King's entered the competition; 11 got bronze and 3 silver. Interestingly the NUS rep highlighted The Geography Department's flash ban the bottle campaign.

Next year, Geography will go for Silver and hopes to involve more staff, students and colleagues in this very positive initiative. Some of the outcomes after participating in this year's scheme have prompted the Geography team to work towards putting together a sustainability strategy for the Geography Department. Check out the awesome video online here to find out more about the project and how the Green Impact workbook has helped other universities and organisations to improve their sustainability, and why you should get involved.
