Success for Geography at Sustainability Awards
30 June 2017
The annual Sustainability Awards recognise both internal and external sustainability contributions to QMUL. The School of Geography has scooped up four awards at this year's awards ceremony on 29 June.
Over the year, the School has raised over £600 for charities including Breast Cancer Now, the Whitechapel Mission, the Fairtrade Foundation and Toilet Twinning. We have written guest blogs about our new geography soup kitchen, as well as toilet twinning.
- The School's Green Mary team, the ‘Geography Greens’, has won overall platinum award for all the fundraising and green initiatives they have carried out throughout the year
- Kate Amis has been awarded the ‘Green Mary Hero’ award for her innovative ideas including the geography soup kitchen amongst other things
- Ed Oliver has been awarded an individual award for his continuous work both within the School and supporting the Sustainability team throughout the year
- The allotment plot on the Mile End campus that Ed’s been looking after (along with colleagues from other QMUL departments) has also won an award
Many thanks to everyone who has helped the Geography Green Mary team this year by attending events, baking cakes or donating money and special thanks to Kate for her ideas and enthusiasm, and Ed for all his work on keeping us green!
