Live Smart

We want to help you to live in smarter ways that benefit your wellbeing, your finances, your local community and the sustainability of the wider planet. “Live Smart” is a new student-led project to help you create positive change.

Live Smart has 3 top themes:

  1. Power of the Purse – saving you money, reducing over consumption and spending responsibly for positive impact
  2. Community – fostering a sense of belonging, celebrating diversity and equity, being good neighbours locally as well as global citizens
  3. Wellbeing – finding ways to increase your health and happiness through reconnecting to society and the wider environment

Students are the heart of our #Live Smart concept which is unique in how it connects big sustainability issues the world is facing for the future with the concerns our students have right now. Students who get involved with Live Smart can take up paid roles, receive rewards and prizes, create products for portfolios and develop skills in action, innovation and collaboration, to help bring the change for sustainability.

Live Smart is supported by the Sustainability Team and is key to the delivery of the University’s wider Sustainability Strategy, working with partners in the local community through our UN RCE Severn.
