In today’s fast-paced world, the global community faces a myriad of economic, environmental and societal challenges. From climate change to resource depletion, the need for sustainable solutions has never been more urgent. At the forefront of this battle for a more sustainable future are the students of today, who possess an unwavering passion for sustainability, and a profound understanding that they hold the key to a better tomorrow.
It is our ambition that UL becomes a global epicentre for sustainable innovation and environmental stewardship. At the heart of this vision lies the recognition that fostering student engagement is paramount to achieving transformative sustainability goals, and this has led to the creation of UL Student Sustainability, a student-led programme supported by the Student Sustainability Coordinator to deliver sustainability to the students of UL.
As we navigate the complexities of a rapidly changing world, it is essential that universities recognise the potential of student involvement in sustainability. By investing in the education and empowerment of our future leaders, we lay the groundwork for a sustainable future. The vision of student engagement at UL sets out to inspire and develop a generation of students to rise to the challenge and create a better, more sustainable world for all.
We have a wide array of events taking place on a weekly basis, from panel discussions and debates, to workshops and guest speakers. These events are accessible for all UL students, and cover a variety of sustainability topics. See our past and current events here, and be sure to keep up to date with any available opportunities on our social media: Instagram, LinkedIn, and X.
