FXU Green Fund

A pot of money was set up to allow groups and individual students to apply to, in order to support energy conservation, waste reduction and sustainability projects and/or events.

Groups and individuals can request up to £2,000 to support a new or existing sustainability event or project which is open to all students. This could be a one off event or a project that takes place over a period of time on campus or in the community.  Projects/events should tackle energy conservation, waste reduction or sustainability. A larger award may be considered for an exceptional application.

The following projects have received support by the Green Fund 2017/18:

  • A power bank workshop led by Renewable Energy Society
  • The community garden led by Green Living Society 
  • Water purification and solar heating workshop by Engineers withour Borders
