The Wrexham Glyndwr University Carbon Management Plan (Appendix B, pg 25, Stakeholder Management) shows our structure and methods of engagement with staff and students in the implementation of the plan.
Amongst some of our processes, we include our Green Champion scheme.
Green Champions - Making a Greener Glyndwr
Wrexham Glyndŵr University is committed to implementing energy conservation practises and measures, preserving environmental resources and reducing our Carbon Footprint. To help us address a full spectrum of environmental and sustainability issues, we are building a team of Green Champion staff volunteers to help us all to become more environmentally aware in the workplace, to bring our best thinking students and staff together initiate ways in which, as a university we can treat our planet’s resources more carefully and considerately.
Each year training takes place at our Northop Campus in conjunction with Plas Derw Trust, Outdoor and Environmental Educationalists. PDT training ensures that staff receive information which includes sessions on:
- What is sustainability
- What is a Green Champion – How we can help
- Biodiversity – How ecosystems work
- Carbon footprint – Energy/pollution
- Food Systems
- Resource Use
Being a Green Champion gives you training opportunities, invitations to sustainability lectures, events and campaigns to get involved in and you will also be sent a monthly green champions newsletter to keep you up to date with WGU’s sustainable news and hopefully give you some inspiration in how to inspire others.
