Queen's Green Teams
The School of Biological Science Green Teams is a driver of sustainability within their area! The team is composed of a mixture of staff and postgraduate students who focus on biodiversity, communicating climate change and collaborating across the university. They have also been successful in receiving Green Funding to deliver a Climate Change Conference.
The Library Green Team has been thinking, and acting, sustainably for a number of years! They host a range of talks, events and workshops which support a range of QUB campaigns (Green Week and Fairtrade Fortnight) whilst encouraging staff and students to think green when using the library. Talks have been completed by individuals from Ulster Wildlife, National Trust and the local community.
Polymer Processing Research Centre launched their ‘Turning the Tide Against Plastic Waste’ project in 2019. This project aims to raise awareness of the positive contribution plastics make to everyday life, and support better-informed decision making around the use, reuse, recycling and disposal of plastic. This has been undertaken by inviting staff, students, local community and industry representatives to seminars, tours, pop up stalls and beach clean-ups.
