In March 2022, the Sustainability Unit ran a competition, offering students the chance to put their ideas for a greener future into practice. For successful applicants, there will be a £500 funding allocated to enable them to implement their idea. The idea or innovation needed to:

  • Address at least 1 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals
  • Be a realistic project which can be implemented and achieved within 6 months (from October 2022)
  • Be cost effective and under £500 to deliver
  • Improve sustainability at the University of Chester 

Students from any subject discipline were encouraged to apply by submitting an application form and then pitching their idea.

The competition closed at the end of March. There were two ideas that will be developed, one focuses on green skills for students and the other is a food redistribution scheme.

We will update this page throughout the next 6 months with more information on how the ideas have progressed.
