The Sustainable World event is one of three potential ‘grand challenge’ events being considered as an offer to all UG students at the University.

Helen Dobson, one of the organisors of the event, gave a talk on aspects of it

Since the meeting in May  a Sustainability Signature event took place in the UoM Freshers week. There will be a CoP meeting in 2015 where we  reflect on that event (dates to be confirmed).
