All students and staff should have some form of introduction to sustainability when they arrive or during their studies. The slide decks can be given/to and shared with staff and students to help them understand what sustainability is and why it is so important, sustainability expectations they have whilst here, tips and actions to reduce their impact and opportunities to learn more and help then better apply sustainability in their learning, research and work.
If you need need the slide decks in PowerPoint format contact us on the email below.
A set of slide desk have been developed to include in your inductions. These range from 1 pagers to 8 pagers. If you need support in delivering a more detailed and interactive sessions contact the Sustainable Development Unit firstname.lastname@example.org
New staff are introduced to the University’s sustainability focus through the job descriptions and expectations set our in their work contract. To provide further information and guidance the university’s Excel based induction system refers all staff to our sustainability work via the corporate website that connects to this micro-site. All new staff are expected to attend a New Employee Welcome & Introduction (NEWI) day where all new staff will meet our sustainability staff and be given a review of sustainability work and responsibilities at the University. To assist staff this slide deck can also be used in your staff induction and training programmes.
