A Healthy University aspires to create a learning environment and organisational culture that enhances the health, wellbeing and sustainability of its community and enables people to achieve their full potential.



Sustainability Ideas

It’s your chance to make a difference! That sustainability idea you’ve had for a while could become reality. Whether a student, member of staff or visitor it’s your opportunity to make the Cardiff Metropolitan University experience that bit better.

Why bother ?

Your sustainability idea counts, this is an opportunity to make yourself heard and perhaps help shape the future of Cardiff Metropolitan University's sustainability agenda. All sustainability ideas are welcome, remember even a small suggestion could make a big difference. These ideas are presented and considered at termly Sustainability Group meetings as part of our EMS.

Such as ?

Have you a great idea for a project about sustainability? Funding is available for staff or student led sustainability themed initiatives each academic year. In 2023/24, funding was provided to support the Sustainable Growing Futures project​.

A recent suggestion for an additional Water Cooler was approved and financed by the Sustainability Committee (see Water Cooler case study).​

Focus Groups

The consultation process for policies and strategies provides the opportunity for staff, students, trade unions and other stakeholders to provide feedback either in person or online at annual focus groups, as well as throughout the year by emailing the sustainability department. The feedback received then goes forward for formal consideration through the University's Sustainability Committee or other relevant working groups. This feedback is taken into consideration during the annual review of all sustainability policies and strategies.
