Green Impact support calls and webinars

Share good practice, learn new skills and network with peers as part of the national Green Impact movement.

Our regular series of free webinars and support calls to ensure we are constantly supporting people delivering our programmes.

Tell me about the webinars

The webinars are a learning and development opportunity designed to give participants insight into current best practice from across Green Impact and the broader sustainability agenda. They’ll be delivered by Green Impact participants, the NUS sustainability team and external guests. As a resource, they’ll be informative and include multiple case studies – and, although there will be opportunities for active participation, they will be less discursive than the support calls.

We’ll be using Skype for Business online meeting software. To fully participate it’s helpful if you have a webcam, microphone and speaker/headphone, although it’s possible to participate with just the speaker/headphone. You can familiarise yourself with this software, and troubleshoot any issues you have using it, before attending a webinar by clicking here.

Webinars will be recorded so if you can’t make them, you’ll be able to watch them at a later date.

Tell me about the support calls

The support calls are very much a networking opportunity for you to share your experiences in an informal way through the year, with others across the country running similar programmes.

This helps develop and nurture the Green Impact community and enables peer-to-peer support, trouble shooting and sharing of good practice and innovation.

Members of the NUS sustainability team will be on hand to facilitate and answer any questions or queries that arise. Their focus is on the functional elements of delivering a Green Impact programme.

For the support calls, we will be using telephone conference call so all you need is a phone line.
