Engaging business and the community
"A more sustainable lifestyle will require the ability to work with others from diverse backgrounds to build resilient, sustainable and equitable communities for the future.” Juliet Millican, CUPP
One of the university’s core aims is to deliver socially purposeful higher education that serves and strengthens society and underpins the economy. Our supporting values include responding to the obligations of sustainable development, financially, environmentally and educationally.
Valuing different forms of knowledge, collaboration, partnership and true participation are central principles to building a more sustainable organisation and society. Read more about our community engagement activity through the Community University Partnership Programme on the CUPP website.
The university is working on many sustainability-focussed projects in collaboration with commercial organisations. You can find details of some of them on the School of Environment and Technology business pages and the brochure below.
The University also has strong links with local councils. For instance, we have representation on the Brighton & Hove City Sustainability Partnership (CSP), and also on Brighton & Hove 10:10 campaign's carbon reduction programme.
