Green Champion Training - PDT Training certified
Today it is more important than ever to become a greener, more efficient university. It will help to improve our reputation, provide a platform for innovation, help attract and retain students, achieve better growth, cut costs and strengthen stakeholder relations.
The Green Champion scheme inspires employees to be more sustainable within their department. The scheme aims to promote environmental awareness and education on reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.
Each year WGU trains it’s Green Champions which takes place at our Northop Campus in conjunction with PDT training, Outdoor and Environmental Educationalists. PDT training ensures that the Green Champions receive information which will provide them with the knowledge and skills to become greener and more sustainable within the University. It will give them the tools they need to build committed action orientated teams to drive sustainability through our departments and make sustainability a valuable part of Wrexham Glyndwr University.
Training sections include:
- Green Champions
- Carbon footprint
- Food Systems
- Resource Use
The last training day was held on 21st July 2017. Staff and Students braved the windy conditions and headed down to WGU’s Northop Campus woodland where PDT conducted their annual Green Champion Training.
“PDT training were great, I feel enthused to be a Green Champion and I have come away with lots of ideas on how to engage others and make a difference within my department” - Pip Francis
