The students union should be doing more to help create renewable energy, and making our campus greener. For example;
- Last year, one of the officers implemented a eco friendly zero waste shop in one of the union shops. The union should install one of these in the other shop as well, and also provide a bin in which containers for this shop can be collected and distributed to other students. This would aide with recycling, and reduce the overall plastic waste of the university.
- The union should also look at any of its current buildings, and see if renewable energy sources such as solar panels can be installed. In addition to being green energy providers, this would also help to alleviate costs for the union.
- The union should also encourage the university to install solar panels on some of it's buildings as well. This would help the university rise in the sustainability tables. as well as encourage climate change awareness within the student and staff bodies.
