Environment & Ethics Officer

The Environment & Ethics Officer is concerned with environmental and ethical issues. Major campaigns have included lobbying the university to provide comprehensive recycling facilities in halls of residences, and reducing food waste across campus through lobbying and education. On top of that, they coordinate the massive ‘Go Green’ Week, and advise the Union itself on its environmental & ethical policy and sustainability issues.

    Hi, I’m Keir and I am your Environment and Ethics Officer. It's my responsibility to ensure that the SU works to reduce its impact on our environment, and that we constantly push for what you, our members, want and need. We've already achieved so much: the fabulous Green Week, Gold 'Green Impact' awards and campaigns to make small changes with a big green difference. My manifesto sets out key areas that I'll be working on, creating a more sustainable, accessible and ethical union. The growth of our 'green' community on campus opens more avenues for great achievements and co-operation, and I'll be working hard to champion those, and every voice, within the SU.

    My role benefits from close co-working with all the other officers, including a push for better mental health provision with Leo, responsibly priced and sourced food with Ben, and a more welcoming built environment with Melissa. If you want to get involved with a campaign or just have a great idea, get in touch. As a part-time officer I have reduced hours but I'm always around via email (ethics_environment@warwicksu.com) or on messenger (m.me/WSUenvethics). Let's keep our campus green and our air clean, have an amazing year!
