Our programmes and campaigns

Research

Our research found that 44% of students, student officers and staff surveyed believed the UK Government is not taking a lead in addressing climate change and 62% thought that the government is not doing enough to encourage the use of renewable energy.

Sign saying Fossil Free University, Fossil Free Research

In 2015, we submitted freedom of information requests to all universities and colleges in the UK, as well as surveying staff and students across the country. We used our findings to produce two reports - one on the state of investments across our education sector, and one on attitudes towards fossil fuels, renewables and investments.

Investments across universities and colleges

Student and staff attitudes towards fossil fuels, renewables and investments

 

These reports built on the original research work conducted by NUS Scotland:

Ethical Investments by Universities in Scotland
