Green Impact Students’ Unions

The Ecologist is proud to be this year’s media partner for the NUS Green Impact Students’ Unions programme

What is Green Impact Students’ Unions?

Green Impact Unions is an environmental accreditation scheme with an awards element that has a proven track record of greening individual students’ unions. Uniquely, it is all about practical actions rather than policy and process.

The scheme is now in its fifth year and continues to go from strength-to-strength. Eighty-eight students’ unions from all corners of the UK have entered the scheme this year. Making it our most successful year so far!

Your chance to take part

Students’ unions are busy getting their submissions ready for the 17 December 2010 deadline. If you’re a student, students’ union staff member or University/College staff member why not get in contact with your union to see if you can help.

Calling all photographers

The Ecologist Communications Challenge Award is one of four special achievement awards available to unions who have entered Green Impact Unions this year.

It aims to display the work of students’ unions through photography.

What we want is a great idea that will have an impact on others. This is all about creativity, originality, clarity and ideas. For more information click here.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
