Arc Universities

Oxford Brookes University has been named the winner of three out of five national sustainability awards, in recognition of staff and student’s commitment to biodiversity and the environment.

The University’s Green Impact team, based at its Swindon Campus, received the ‘Environmental Improvement Award’ at the Green Impact National Awards 2023, which were announced last week. In addition, a graduate student and a staff member were awarded prizes for their hard work and dedication to sustainability on campus.

Green Impact is a multi award-winning sustainability learning and awards programme, run by student-led charity Students Organising For Sustainability (SOS).

Oxford Brookes’ Swindon Campus team was rewarded for a transformative rewilding project, which involved rejuvenating a previously neglected patch of land on the Swindon Campus, bringing back native flora and fauna. A colourful and biodiverse outdoor space for students and staff to enjoy was also created, along with installations of bird boxes, bug hotels and hedgehog houses to boost local wildlife.
