The university aims to become a centre of excellence in building sustainability into research and teaching and learning and work with local, regional, national and global bodies to help build sustainable learning communities.
Universities are essential to build a sustainable society, and world. Here at the University of Brighton, we take our role seriously and have defined Sustainability as one of the university's core values.
Our aim is to embed it into all the work that we do. This can only be done by a large number of dedicated staff and students accross the university. This website is the first attempt to bring all this wonderful work together.
