Last month, students from a variety of degree backgrounds volunteered as Student Sustainability Auditors. They received IEMA approved training on sustainability auditing, which they then used to audit teams of Sustainability Champions at King’s across two days. Find out more about the Sustainability Champions programme here.
We asked one of the students how they found the experience:
As a Student Sustainability Auditor, I learned ways how Universities can adopt Eco-Friendly ways to make themselves sustainable. I am delighted to be part of the team that audited certain departments in KCL to understand activities undertaken by them in the year. It also helped me to understand innovative approaches which any university can adopt. As we worked with students from different departments, we also came across a wider perspective and made new friends as well. We helped each other to fill in knowledge gaps on sustainability. Since the audit was conducted by the students themselves, it provided a good opportunity to give our feedback as well. I hope this is continued at regular intervals.
