Here at Lancaster University, we believe that everyone has the ability to transform our world. It is essential to our sustainability work, and we want to engage with and support all our staff and students so we can act together as a community, to help tackle the climate emergency in a collaborative way.
Green Lancaster is a collaborative initiative run by Lancaster University and Lancaster University Students’ Union to grow sustainable ideas across the whole university community.
Both staff members and students can get involved in any of their projects – from growing vegetables and looking after chickens at the ECOHub allotment on campus, to planting trees and wildflowers to encourage biodiversity in the local area.Green Lancaster
