ABOUT US

The University of Edinburgh's only society for sustainable development.


Promoting sustainability on campus and beyond through learning and community initiatives.


A space for students, staff and the community to share their interest in sustainable development.

WHAT WE DO


We organise free guest lectures on a variety of sustainability-related topics ranging from climate justice, environmental law, climate psychology to youth climate action to foster ideas within the university community and beyond.


Open meetings are a hub of ideas allowing you to get directly involved with the society  or get support from us. We welcome new ideas or motivated individuals keen to join existing working groups to impact our community and more.


In partnership with other sustainability-focused societies on campus, we set up clothes swaps to offer cheap low impact alternatives to students and non-students.


If you want to get your hands dirty in a lovely atmosphere then you are in the right spot! Different initiatives are happening on campus and the city although we focus on GROW, a garden located in Fountainbridge. These plants (above) are our very own!

Due to COVID-19, things might be a little different this year. We've got our fingers crossed that it will be possible to continue what we do but alterations might have to be made. In the meantime, we've created a brand new blog about sustainable development in the news and regarding the university, as well as other snippets of sustainability.
