The Student Environment & Sustainability Committee (SESC) is a student-led group which looks at sustainability at the University. The SESC aims to gather feedback and understand student priorities regarding sustainability. The SESC is chaired by the Ethics and Environment Rep and is attended by Environment & Sustainability (E&S) Reps from all academic schools. Anyone can sign up to be an E&S rep, just ask about the position at your school at the start of each academic year!

Attendance at SESC meetings is not exclusive to E&S reps; any interested students are welcome to attend and contribute. This feedback is then taken to the University’s Environment and Sustainability Committee (ESC). These meetings are mostly made up of colleagues but are also attended by a designated Students’ Union Sabbatical Officer, the Ethics and Environment Rep & a postgraduate officer.

If you can’t make a SESC meeting, you can still get your opinion heard! The Ethics and Environment Rep also holds monthly forums where anybody can come along and discuss environmental issues at the University and Union. Find out when these are on the NUSU Your Voice Twitter page.
