Arc Universities

The University of Northampton mirrored the COP26 climate change summit with a week of environmental action on campus, between Monday 1 and Friday 5 November.


Industry and organisations attending included the Environment Agency, Anglian Water, life sciences company Horiba, the RSPB and Woodland Trust. Community groups were also invited, including a litter picking group and a climate change action group. Academics from the University spent the week blogging on issues around climate change, and presenting their research.

Event organiser, Energy Officer, Danielle Bird, said:

“We felt COP26 was a really good opportunity for the University to promote the issues around climate change and sustainability for both our students and staff. I know most people are aware of climate change, but what we really want to do is to make it more relatable to people here in Northampton.”
