How to get involved?
Bangor University established The Sustainability Lab to be a focal point of leadership on Sustainable Development as we aim to become in all aspects ‘The Sustainable University’. Our big ambition is that sustainability is seen as something for everyone and to do that we need to involve as many people as possible.
In order to Bring Sustainability to Life at Bangor, to make sure that all our decisions and actions are accountable, and that we make continuous progress as The Sustainable University, we have set up a number of initiatives and groups to put sustainability at the heart of teaching, learning, research and innovation.
Our motto is ‘doing things with you not to you or for you”, and whether you are a student, staff member, a business, a visitor, or a member of the local or global community, your contribution is vital to our success.
Putting the world to rights (Sustainability Think Tanks)
Putting the world to rights is a friendly monthly group which takes place from October to May each year. It is open to all staff and students. It encourages its participants to come forward with and discuss all sorts of ideas around the environmental, social, cultural, ethical and financial aspects of Sustainability at Bangor University and wider community.
There are 8 Putting the world to rights sessions in the academic year. Following the introductory session in October, the 7 other Putting the world to rights sessions are themed in line with Wales’ Well-being Goals. This helps us focus equally on the different areas of sustainability and well-being during the academic year.
