Sustainability may sound like a scary word, but it is indeed a fascinating topic – mainly because we all have something to chip in with!
If you are a student at West Suffolk College, no matter your age, whether you are in FE or HE, the course you are enrolled in, the type of job you envision yourself doing in the future nor your current knowledge on sustainability – there will always be something you can do to contribute to a better planet for all!
From the Sustainability Centre, we want to help you find your superpower and use it for the benefit of the people and the planet – two of the three elements of the Triple Bottom Line of sustainability.
