Get Involved: Students

There are a range of ways to get involved in sustainability during your studies at Queen Mary.

Sustainable Development Course

As part of Queen Mary's commitment to integrate sustainable development into all aspects of our operations, we are currently offering all student the opportunity to complete a free optional module on sustainable development with EcoCampus.

This self-guided online Sustainable Development course provides a structured overview of sustainability and environmental management.

At the end of this course you will have enhanced your knowledge of:

  • The principles of sustainable development
  • The role that EcoCampus plays in Queen Mary’s environmental sustainability journey
  • Ways in which you can make a difference.

On completion of the course, you will be able to take a short online quiz and if you achieve a minimum score of 80% will be awarded a certificate of achievement. This certificate carries Continuing Professional Development (CPD) recognition. 

Over 400 student have completed the course so far, get in touch with to register.

Student Groups and Initiatives

Every year the Sustainability team helps support a student group with a focus on sustainability: the Green Mary Group. The aim of the group is to work together to improve and tackle sustainability issues on campus. Find out more on the Students' Union website.

The Students' Union is also home to the student-led Environmental Society. Find out more and get involved.

Students at our Whitechapel campus can get involved with the Sustain@BL society who aim to raise awareness of environmental issues, educate students and staff on how to make more sustainable choices and integrate more into the local community to create long-lasting positive relationships between the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and our surroundings.
