How it works
The Green Impact scheme works on an annual cycle, launching each autumn unions try to implement change throughout the academic year, submitting your work in late spring, receiving an audit from NUS in early summer, then awards are announced in July.
Each participating union will be given access to the online toolkit which houses all the actions we’d like you to work through for the year, some are mandatory and some are optional. If you’re interested in what the actions are before you sign up, you can see these here. If you have a more specific question, you may be able to find the answer on our FAQs.
Over the months you will be making progress on campus, setting up campaigns and initiatives and there are a number of ways you can receive support over this period:
