FXU Green Fund

Although GLP has come to an end we have set up this 'Green Fund' to continue the good work initiate by the project. A pot of money was set up to allow groups and individual students  apply for to support energy conservation, waste reduction and sustainability projects and 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 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.
