A Net Zero University - Are You With Us?

A NET ZERO UNIVERSITY: ARE YOU WITH US?

In early 2022, Northern Ireland set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in the Climate Change Bill. As a University, we want to lead the way and demonstrate what is possible. 

This is not a simple journey, but it is necessary and urgent.

We're developing a strategy that will enable us to achieve net zero. To make sure this strategy is ambitious, credible and something everyone can get behind, the University has launched a survey and are hosting key events to gather views, priorities, concerns and ideas for action. 

Make sure your voice is heard, and together we can make net zero a reality. Are you with us?

Get Involved

Net Zero Survey

Complete our climate survey to share your priorities, concerns and ideas for action with the university. Your input will help shape the path to Net-Zero. 

The online survey launches on Monday 9 January and will remain open until midnight on Sunday 5 February.

Staff and students who complete the survey will be entered into a competition to win the following prizes: two first class tickets to Dublin; two tickets for Queen's Film Theater and two tickets for the Comedy Club in Mandela Hall. 

Have your say here.
