Recent examples of our work with partners from different sectors:
Project Pilgrim at Gloucester Cathedral
Our new collaboration with the Project Pilgrim team at Gloucester Cathedral reflects the shared focus we both have on engaging diverse groups across the third sector with sustainability in all its forms, from social inclusion to tackling waste. Sharing a range of challenges that student teams delivered with community partners, our ‘celebrate community’ event at the Cathedral saw us making clay gargoyles around our diverse stories and cultures, linking us into our shared local space.

Collaborating with pioneering corporate sustainability leaders, Interface, we ran the Radical Sustainability masterclass in 2019. The aim of this partnership is to develop professional exchanges for company leaders to share their innovations, professional learning and change strategies for sustainability, to drive forward new ways of doing business. The event also enabled our students across different course teams to learn from the best and gain insight into ways they can bring the sustainability advantage into their own careers and enterprise concepts.

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust
Working together to support the mission of GWT for more wildlife, wild places and more people connected to the natural world. The University and GWT collaborate on a range of research and action projects, linking students into live conservation work at local sites from Midger Woods to the Forest of Dean, on projects from urban hedgehog conservation to the reintroduction of the pine marten. Students gain valuable experience and support GWT with data, report writing for projects. GWT have been long standing advisors to RCE Severn and contribute workshops to the employability programme at the University.
