Both the University and Union take sustainability seriously and are committed to providing as many opportunities to educate ourselves, help our communities and be the change. 

Our dedicated sustainability society, Conscious Creatives, was born out of a lack of responsible and sustainable activity from students with the aim to educate, promote and celebrate sustainable and social responsibility throughout the University. So far, they have brought students together through workshops, exhibitions, action days and collaborative projects. 

The Unions Sustainability Officer leads the Conscious Creatives society and is there to make sure that we are doing everything we can do make a positive impact on our planet. Are you passionate about sustainability and want to join the Conscious Creatives? You know the drill! 



From making your food go further and growing at home to getting creative with fashion and balancing household bills, Hubbub is bringing you the know-how to live savvy at home.

They've got hacks, tips and inspiration on how you can start living that little bit more savvy!



Now in its fourth year, the awards recognise innovative and outstanding work that addresses environmental, social and ethical issues with sustainability running clearly through the thinking and approach.

Open to all students, the Sustainability Award will launch again in 2021.



Although recycling is a great starting point to living a more sustainable lifestyle, there's a whole host of other things that we could do to have a more conscious impact on our environment.


Here's a list on how you can inject a bit more sustainability

into your daily life! 


Nicky Hope, BA Graphic Design

'It’s up to us to make people realise that you aren’t free from this responsibility, especially as artists and designers!’

Meg Ojari, BA Illustration

'I’m not going to make a new alternative to plastic, but I’m going to hopefully help a few people realise what’s happened, and just change their habits and then maybe they’ll tell someone else!'

Kaya Mitchell, BA Filmmaking

“I think that this period of our lives will be crucial in history as it has already started a new wave of ‘conscious creatives’



We're currently working on bringing you a whole host of sustainability resources and information.


Whether for your practice or just your every day, we hope this resource will be beneficial.
