Sustainability across the campus

A month of engagement!

Open Day North For Open Day on Saturday 10 August, the northern Sustainability Team were set up at the Inveresk Campus. This future site of the UTAS Launceston main campus proved popular with community members of all ages, particularly with the primary-school demographic and not just because we offered free organic, Fair Trade chocolate in commercially compostable wrappers and the chance to play sustainability bingo. Many of these young people were already enrolled in university, through the Children’s University, and were able to add credits to their ‘Passport of Learning’. Overall, it was a very enjoyable day and it was great to see our future generation already actively engaging with sustainability.

Open Day South

It was a conversation filled day at the Sandy Bay Campus on Sunday 4 August, with families, staff, current and prospective students engaging with our stall to talk about sustainability programs on campus and play a game of sustainability bingo. Vice Chancellor Rufus Black visited the stall and discussed sustainability with 2019 SIPS students flying the sustainability banner. Special mention and acknowledgment of the UTAS Marketing Team taking a quantum leap for sustainability with gift bags of seed- bearing lollipops, reusable cups and other sustainable items. More information on the contents of the gift bags provided below in this bulletin.
