Student action

The Global Environmental Sustainability team is working closely with our students to co-develop sustainability initiatives, so that we can create a culture of sustainability at Heriot-Watt University. We want to start a conversation about sustainability so that we can take action together, as a university community, to address the climate crisis.

This includes the roll-out of summer internships directly addressing sustainability challenges faced by the university, the formation of engagement groups in which students can share their concerns and aspirations and the inclusion of student feedback in the governance of sustainability workstreams across our global campuses.

Sustainability at the Student Union

Our student community continue to actively demonstrate their advocacy for sustainability through self-organised activities and efforts. They are the voices that we strive to listen to as we develop our global environmental strategy and the pathways to achieving our long-term goals. Visit the Student Union Sustainability site to learn more about the positive approach being taken to address the challenges we face, and to keep up to date with student-led sustainability events.
