22 - 28 February 2021

Sustainability is one of the most important issues facing our generation, it is vital that all of us come together to take action and improve our sustainability. This campaign is looking to you as students, to understand what you want to see improve regarding sustainability at Royal Holloway, both immediately and over the next few years. We will then take your feedback to the University to help inform the development of a new sustainability strategy. Over the campaign week there are events to get involved with and blogs to read, all focused on the wider sustainability picture and how this impacts us at Royal Holloway. I look forward to seeing you at the events, and hope you get involved with the campaign as much as possible! If you have any further thoughts or questions, please get in contact with me at president@su.rhul.ac.uk.

Kate Roberts, SU President
