Green Corner

Durham Students’ Union always strives to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, and a lot of our big campaigns are environmental based. We just want to share with you what we are doing to put forward the green agenda, both internally and to external bodies.

Of big success has been the recent campaigning regarding the Copenhagen Climate Summit from the 7th to the 18th December. DSU’s Environment and Ethics Officer, Kristina Hagan, has worked hard with loads of the different student groups to organise campaigning and petitions to call for fair and ambitious action about climate change to take place at Copenhagen. Kristina has worked with groups such as People and Planet to co-ordinate student activism about the issue. A flashmob was held in Durham on Saturday 28th November to get Durham students showing active support for the campaign. The local media all came down and articles about the event were published in today’s Northern Echo. DSU is organising a bus down to London for the weekend now to get students to join in with The Wave, a national demonstration about the Copenhagen summit, for more information about this contact Kristina at dsu.environment@durham.ac.uk.

 

DSU is also improving how it operates environmentally too. Last year, DSU received the Bronze level in the Sound Impact awards last year and over the next two years is aiming for the Silver level. Success has already been achieved as DSU has come out top in a table comparing all the different colleges for recycling rates, which is a big improvement and is statistical evidence that DSU is becoming greener.

Finally, the DSU sabbatical team want to ensure that environmental policy remains high on the agenda. On this note the officers joined Bill Bryson, Chancellor of Durham University on a litter pick at Trevelyan College to show their support for the University’s Environment Week. Great fun was had by all making Trevs look prettier!
