Hello! Welcome to the 'green' side of Your Union.
Have a look around these pages to find out who we are, what we're up to and how you can get involved.
If you've got any questions, please feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01786 467198
who are we?
We are the Students' Union environmental team.
We are Union staff and a large group of student and staff volunteers.
We also go by "The Green + Blue Dream Team", because we dream big and we love the massive green and blue (as seen from space) ball of wonderfullness we live on.
This quote by Paul Hawken describes our ethos quite well:
“When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: If you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth and the lives of the poor, and you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse. What I see everywhere in the world are ordinary people willing to confront despair, power, and incalculable odds in order to restore some semblance of grace, justice, and beauty to this world.”
We started off as being externally funded and an extra arm within the Students' Union, but now we are firmly embedded in the Student Union and form a core part of its activities!
In our day-to-day life, we strive to make life here at the University of Stirling more environmentally friendly and build a stronger community as we do this. If you're curious about how we do this, you can explore what we do here or come visit us in the Green + Blue Space (between the book shop and Union shop in the Atrium) any time and check out our 'What's On' page for details of upcoming events - everyone is welcome!
