Business and BioLab Students Form Sustainability Society


After successfully participating in ‘Great Big Green Week’ Students of Business are collaborating with Biolab in a new collegiate Sustainability Society.

Great Big Green Week took place in October last year, with students and staff from all across University Centre Weston taking part. The UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature, the week sees beacons within the community like schools, colleges and universities come together to stand against the threat of climate change.  

All sorts of activities take place throughout the celebration, aiming to highlight the need for sustainable solutions and call upon the community to get involved.

Inspired by their collaborative work throughout Great Big Green Week, Business Management and Sustainability, BA (Hons) and Biological laboratory Sciences FdSc students formed their Sustainability Society.

The society is student-led and allows students to generate initiatives to further the Sustainability Agenda and raise awareness of issues relating to sustainability in the community.

The Society recently had its first meeting at the Winter Gardens and is currently working on organising community events and engaging young people.

Burnham & Weston Energy, say “we really want to involve more young people in community energy and, as a demographic hard to engage t-date, we recognise it is important we listen to young people to understand how we can engage them and what opportunities are needed locally.”
