At the University of Brighton we believe we must respond to the imperative of sustainable development. We realise that a community of our size has a significant impact on our shared environment. Every one of us has a part to play in order to better conserve resources and reduce pollution.
We define sustainability as one of our core values, which we resolve to continually research and put into practice, demonstrated by our coming second out of 150 universities in People & Planet's University League 2016.
The university has been awarded £2.98m to deliver the Green Growth Platform, a strategic five-year project designed to support growth among regional SMEs working in environmental and low-carbon sectors.
Jonathan Chapman, Professor of Sustainable Design, has pioneered the concept of 'emotionally durable design', challenging the notions of a throwaway society. You can watch his well-attended inaugural lecture here.
