Greenspace was created in 2010 to bring together all of Durham University’s environmental plans, policies and procedures.
Greenspace is managed by the University's Energy and Sustainability Team, who coordinate environmental initiatives across the University with the help of Environment Champions, Student Representatives and Steering Groups.
It has been an incredible journey: from first launching the Green Move Out in 2005 and becoming Fairtrade certified in 2007, to more recently achieving the Platinum Eco Campus award in 2020.
Did you know that staff and students can all take part in the online Environmental Sustainability Training Module? This can be accessed any time on duo under My Organisations & Online Training and should take around 30 minutes to complete.
My Greenspace is all about bringing together the community of students and staff at Durham and showing us all that small actions do add up to a big difference.
My Greenspace was created to bring together students and staff at Durham University to achieve our sustainability and wellbeing targets.
My Greenspace is an interactive programme available for everyone at Durham. We want as many people to join our Greenspace movement as possible and reward you for your positive behaviours that improve individual and university-wide sustainability and wellbeing. We know that small acts add up to make a big difference and that together we have the power to create real change.
