Get Involved in Sustainability Related Events, Activities and Initiatives

At Swansea University we offer students, staff and the local community opportunities to get involved in our work to improve practices across our campuses and help us continue to lead the way in developing a more sustainable future for all. We regularly hold working groups across the year on a variety of sustainability topics including carbon management, Fairtrade, environmental management and waste. If you wish to get involved in shaping sustainability at the University, register via the link below.

Attending our events is the perfect opportunity to meet new people, increase your employability, and further your understanding of today’s most pressing issues. There are countless ways you can help us reduce our environmental impact across campus. 

We follow all relevant government advice and guidelines during our on-campus events and we ask that you do the same. Further advice and guidelines are available on our Eventbrite page. Keep reading to find out how you can get involved and register for events.

If you have any questions about any of the events listed below, please contact us.
