EfS for students

Untitled Page

When we talk to students about sustainability, we find there's sometimes confusion about what it means to them and their life at Anglia Ruskin. So we recruited a team of students to investigate and make some films for us, with support from the General Alumni Fund.

Eight in every 10 students consistently believe that sustainable development should be actively incorporated and promoted by universities... Over two-thirds of respondents consistently believe that sustainable development should be incorporated into all university courses
