10 Ways to a more sustainable World
A new publication highlighting ten ways in which the University is having an impact on global sustainability is being launched today at the School of Earth and Environment.
'10 Ways to a More Sustainable World' highlights ten of the ways in which University projects have had a lasting positive impact on the world and, in particular, on the issue of sustainability.
Intitiaves from the waterless washing machine to greener internet, and the solar powered fridge to eco-friendly cosmetics, are amongst some of the remarkable projects featured. They were chosen following an intense University-wide competition, and showcase some of the world-class ways the University can have a major impact on the way we live today.
Speaking at the launch Professor Richard Williams, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for International Partnerships, said: "Today it is more important than ever to demonstrate how the work taking place at universities impacts on the world around us. The '10 Ways' provides an opportunity to showcase the global impact of our work in the vital area of sustainability to a wider audience, including the business community, research funders, policy makers and the public."
The chosen ten include breakthrough discoveries, innovative products and technology, spin-out companies and research projects which have informed key public policies. All share the ability to demonstrate a positive impact on the sustainability of the world around us.
