Special event: DMU and the Climate Emergency

In the light of increased public, media and government engagement with the urgent need to act on climate change, how should DMU respond?

  • Should DMU follow the example of Leicester City Council and universities such as Bristol and Newcastle and declare a climate emergency?
  • Should DMU work towards a target of net-zero emissions?
  • What would DMU look like if it had an unsurpassed commitment to act on climate change?

We invite staff and students to meet and share their ideas on this topic at a special event in the Campus Centre Atrium on Thursday 30 May from 11am to 1pm.

SDG13 climate action - main

This event is related to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 13 (Climate Action). Following a brief introduction to DMU’s current work to reduce its own carbon footprint and the current policy context, attendees will have the chance to share their own thoughts and ideas for action through small-group and plenary discussions.

To register your attendance, please complete this short survey which will inform the discussion at the event. If you cannot attend, you can also use the survey to share your thoughts.

Lunch will be provided. There will also be free tubs of ice cream, including a vegan option, for any students who come along (while stocks last)!

If you have any enquiries, please email sustainability@dmu.ac.uk
