Sustainability interns took (Mumford’s) pride of place at the Open Days in Hobart and Launceston in August. The stalls and interns were organised by Varu Jayaseelan (SIPS Fellow) and supported by Sustainability Officers Carmen Primo Perez and Catherine Elliott. Feedback was positive in the engagement of students, parents and other staff members in conversations about sustainability in general and on campus. Ideas and comments received focused on topics of reducing plastic waste, composting facilities and divesting from fossil fuels. Sustainability friendly Fairtrade chocolates in compostable wrappers were the rewards for those sharing their thoughts at the stall. Varu said “it was a fun, active and high impact day where we were able to spread our passion towards sustainability through our stories.” Open Day reflections
