Green Mary is QMUL's sustainability-focussed student group. Its aim is to inspire students with an interest in sustainability to take positive action on campus, whilst equipping them with the skills they need to become future sustainability leaders.
Green Mary runs in a similar way to traditional societies, with members and a committee. The committee roles (including President, Vice President, Treasurer and Social Secretary) will be elected in April of each academic year.
Further resources and information can be found in the right hand box.
Green Mary offers a range of opportunities, broadly grouped under the following headings:
Events where you can meet like-minded QMUL students, whilst getting involved in environmentally-focussed activities. Ideas for events include film screenings, cooking workshops, and environmental volunteering in the local area.
Projects and campaigns which aim to make a difference to the overall sustainability of the campus, or the behaviours of QMUL staff and students. For example, stationery amnesties and giveaways to encourage reuse.
Members of the Green Mary committee will have numerous opportunities to become student leaders and ambassadors. For example, by attending QMUL’s Sustainability Committee and representing the group, or leading Green Mary events and projects.
Through the year QMUL Sustainability offer a wide range of training and career skill development opportunities for Green Mary students. These include Green Mary Project Assistant and Environmental Auditor roles, where students can volunteer to assist with the staff Green Mary certification scheme.
