Staff Sustainability Forum
In order to successfully carry out our Strategic Plan, our newly formed sustainability forum will be working to implement the principles and initiatives out lined in the Climate Action Roadmap for Further Education Colleges. These initiatives include monitoring and reducing our carbon footprint, increasing biodiversity on campus, and further increasing the number of carbon literate staff and students.
Sustainability Committee – Student Council
The Sustainability Committee has been created as part of the Student Council to tackle issues and help to embed sustainability within our curriculum, campus and culture. Engaging with crucial topics that will affect everyone’s future will allow students to develop the skills needed to become catalysts for positive change.
We have a new society starting soon in which students can be part of keeping Runshaw and our community sustainable.
Woodland Trust Area & Fire Pit
Our Outdoor Learning Area was built in partnership with the Woodland Trust as part of our enrichment provision. Strong evidence shows that engagement with outdoor natural environments is beneficial for mental health and wellbeing: through a restorative effect, positive social contact and opportunities for physical activity.
