Sustainable Futures

Sustainable Futures is a LSE SU student society that works alongside the Sustainability Team in Estates to develop and implement initiatives that work towards achieving the Environmental Policy objectives.

The SPF awards money to student and staff-led environmental projects on campus. It is financed with the 10p 'tax' on bottled water sold across LSE catering outlets.

Past winners have included a team of students who installed a green roof on the Plaza Cafe outside the Library, and another group who installed beehives on the roof of Connaught House.

The Fund is run by the Sustainable Futures Society, which also supports entrants to develop their sparks of inspiration into a fully fledged project proposal. The funding is allocated by an independent panel representing a cross section of the School, including students and senior academics.
