The Sustainable Futures Society works to increase the sustainable practices of the LSE by working jointly with staff and students on environmental initiatives. We administer the 20,000-pound Sustainable Projects Fund that gives out funding for projects to increase the Sustainability on Campus. The fund is generated through a twenty pence tax on plastic bottles sold at LSE. For more information about the fund check out our website or the video in the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAEqBtsB4jk
We also run many events with exciting speakers from NGO’s and start–ups, as well as green careers related networking opportunities. In addition, we work closely with LSE to realise the LSE 2030 strategic plan, the official document drafted by the school to increase sustainability at LSE.
There are many exciting opportunities to get involved and have a tangible impact on sustainability in our community such as a sustainable podcast, a research project to reduce food and plastic waste, a project to reduce the environmental impact of next year’s freshers fair and many more!
By purchasing a membership, you will be able to take part in managing the Sustainable Projects Fun and participate in our many other activities. You will be first to know about and gain exclusive access to our research projects, volunteering opportunities and networking events!
We are launching the Sustainable Projects Fund and our Society on Thursday the 24th at 1600 BST! Hear from the presidents of the society, our partners, LSE’s own head of sustainability, the sustainability officer and the environmental and ethics officer!
