Liverpool Students' Union wins National Environmental Awards
12 April 2012
Liverpool Students’ Union has just been named a Gold Award winner at the National Union of Students (NUS) Green Impact Awards in Manchester.
The awards recognise the environmental work of students' unions around the country and this year had a record 105 unions competing for the nine awards. The awards are part of the NUS Green Impact initiative which provides environmental accreditation for students' unions, allowing unions to showcase great environmental practice.
Dannie Grufferty, NUS Vice-President (Society and Citizenship), said:
"The quality of the entrants into this year's awards was exceptional and all the winners should be very proud of themselves. They've set a great example for those around them and have made a real progress for environmental sustainability.
"Students' unions have often long been at the forefront of environmental campaigning and since 2005 NUS Green Impact has been helping students' unions to green themselves, their universities and their communities."
