Sustainability Action has won funding from the University’s Education Enhancement Fund to deliver the first student sustainability research symposium in April 2016.

The ‘Educating Global Citizens’ symposium is an academic conference designed for students and with students. Undergraduate students from across the UK can be involved in a number of different ways, including:

  • Applying for a paid internship to help organise the first event of this kind. More details here .

    • technology;
    • engineering;
    • arts and humanities;
    • science;
    • health sciences;
    • social sciences;
    • business and law;
    • international sustainability.
  • Joining the student scientific committee to assess the student presentation submissions.
  • Attending this free event with over 100 of your peers.
  • Using creative skills to capture the event through film, drawings, social media.

The best papers will be published in post-event in a symposium proceedings available for free online, as well as winning conference prizes.
