Event details

One Planet Week event

Join our discussion about our new Sustainability Plan. 
A panel discussion with questions invited from the audience.

Following the recent publication of the University of York’s 2021 - 2030 Sustainability Plan, YUSU has organised an open forum event: to give everyone the opportunity to add their voice to the conversation around sustainability at York.

We welcome all UoY staff and students and the wider public to come along and find out more about the Sustainability Plan, how it will affect life and work on campus and beyond, and to hear from our panellists about the wider array of sustainability initiatives that are planned and already taking place.

This introduction will be followed by a Q&A session encouraging the audience to guide the discussion by sharing their questions, thoughts, and suggestions with the panel. Attendees can submit questions at the event and in advance as part the ticketing process, and we really want to hear what you have to say!
