Call for Ideas: Students’ Green Fund

Want £300,000 to make a change?

We’re looking for your awesome ideas to make the world a better place.

The National Union of Students have been awarded £5m by the higher Education Funding Council for England to support a Students’ Green Fund.There will be four key themes for the fund:

  • Student Participation
  • Partnership (with the university, other students’ unions, community groups and local organisations)
  • Impact
  • Legacy

The selected projects will receive the funding over two academic years and the fund will be used by Students’ Unions up and down the country to encourage sustainability initiatives.

We’ll be bidding for the funding this summer and we’re looking for awesome, student led initiatives that will start in the autumn and will have a lasting legacy for future generations.

You might have some great ideas on how to make travel to university more sustainable, or perhaps you’ve got a great idea about making students homes more eco-friendly. Maybe you’d like to partner up with Transport for Greater Manchester to improve cycle facilities for students, or you’d like to work with Manchester City Council to improve green spaces for future generations.

Click here to tell us in no more than 50 words about your idea.

You’ll need to submit your idea by Friday 17 May. Think big!

We’re sure you’ve got plenty of ideas to make the world a greener place, but if you need a bit of inspiration and help to shape your thoughts this handy video from NUS should help you out.

If you would like to be kept updated on the results of this survey or to enter a draw for two Pangaea guestlist tickets, please include your email address when submitting your idea.

    As well as encouraging cycling, Transport for Greater Manchester should be working much harder to keep the promises they made about improving and enhancing local biodiversity following the huge losses that we have experienced recently as a result of the new Metrolink lines. All we have seen so far is some, rather inept, tree planting and a pathetic, lifeless pond in Withington!
