Radical Sustainability masterclass and student competition on 12 February

Jan 11, 2019 | Staff | 0 comments

The University is hosting an exclusive event to advance sustainability as critical to the future of business on Tuesday 12 February, in partnership with Interface, corporate sustainability pioneers who placed 3rd in the 2018 Globescan sustainability leaders survey.

The Sustainability team has collaborated with the Schools of Business and Technology and Art and Design in creating this event to benefit students and build business partnerships.

 

The event plan includes:

  • Student competition: great prizes from Interface for student work focused on sustainability – finalists can exhibit at the event, network with companies and sustainability experts, and join a special professional workshop from Interface.

See here for the competition flier for students who’d like to go for the individual or team prizes. Closing Friday 18  January – the selected finalist entries will be invited to exhibit at the event on Tuesday 12 February.

  • Business masterclass: expert input from Interface and interactive sessions, for senior personnel driving sustainability forward in a range of organisations, inspired by how Interface placed sustainability at the heart of their commercial success.

The masterclass is invitation-only for external organisations but the headline presentations will be recorded and shared with staff and students after the event, as material that can be used in teaching and research.

 

This event draws on the experiences of both the University and Interface in driving change for sustainability, aiming to connect students, staff and external organisations who are developing new ideas and collaborations in this area.

The student exhibition will open for view from 10am in the atrium of the School of Business and Technology at Oxstalls, with prize giving around 4pm, and social media through the day using the #RadicalSustainability hashtag.

Radical Sustainability is funded by LIFT: Learning Innovation for Tomorrow and is part of our external engagement work in sustainability through RCE Severn, our United Nations designated regional centre of expertise in sustainability education.
