“At UCEM, we are on a mission to become the world’s most sustainable university and our students are integral to this as influencers of change in the built environment and beyond. The Responsible Futures initiative is an invaluable mechanism in embedding the student voice in our work on sustainability. Our students gain an insight into what we do to embed sustainability at UCEM via Globe and cast a critical eye on our activity so any enhancements are identified and we are able to tackle these. I always look forward to harnessing their collective passion and feedback to better UCEM’s sustainability activity.”Aled Williams, Executive Director– Innovation and Partnerships
