We are very proud to announce that two of our Green Impact Award Winners have also been recognised at the national Green Impact Awards.
Congratulations to the School of Computing, Science & Engineering’s Daniel Wadsworth, and undergraduate students Laura Reed and Callum Hill!
Programme Administrator Daniel scooped a Highly Commended prize, in the category of Environmental Hero, receiving his special award at a ceremony that took place in Manchester on Wednesday 9 July 2014.
Undergraduate students Laura Reed and Callum Hill won a ‘Highly Commended’ in the national Environmental Improvement Award category for their work in creating a wildlife friendly garden at their accommodation site at Salford Student Village.
The University’s Green Impact Awards encourage colleagues to make positive changes to improve the sustainability of their workplaces. These range from replacing bottle-fed water coolers to running Switch-Off campaigns and reducing paper use – small steps towards a greener working environment.
Teams have reported a number of positive outcomes, including getting to know colleagues better, greater understanding of environmental sustainability and empowerment to adopt energy-saving behaviours at home as well as work.
