The Green Impact Students� Unions awards are our opportunity to recognise the commitment students� unions have made to create positive change and equip our student body with the skills they need to work towards a more just and sustainable future.

Green Impact responds to student interest and demand for sustainability, allowing unions to showcase work on areas such as equality, community, curriculum reform and campaigning. 2017/18 years marks the 11th year of the national programme, with 70 unions participating and 2,204 actions taken.

This year Green Impact has engaged students and staff in sustainability through campaigns such as financial divestment, coffee cups, green mindfulness and plastic free campuses, as well as supporting unions to build strong community and institutional partnerships to create bigger changes on campus.
