As an environmentally conscious academic institution which influences over 11,000 people, the LSE recognizes that it has a significant ecological footprint and that as a society we are facing multiple environmental challenges. Why not start making a difference where we live and work?!
As part of the School's continued drive on environmental and sustainability issues, we are looking for volunteers to publicise and support environmental efficiency initiatives within their LSE halls of residences throughout the year.
Residences Sustainability Champions are students living in halls who work together towards the shared vision of a sustainable society. There are between two and six Sustainability Champions in each hall of residence, each committed to improving the environmental and social performance of their hall during their stay. Champions benefit by gaining experience of environmental projects, putting good sustainability ideas into practice, awareness raising and event organisation.
The champs in every hall are a self-organising group. They have senior management support from the director of residences. They will work in partnership with relevant staff and students in their hall and access expert advice from the LSE Sustainability Team. During term time, champs will liaise with the Hall Student Committee, front of house managers, wardens, SU officers and the residences sustainability officer, Dan Reeves, firstname.lastname@example.org.
