Hi there! I'm Clare Grist and I'm your Environment Officer for 2017-18
I'm a 2nd year Maths and Spanish student from London. As Environment Officer, I sit on both the SRC and the SSC, representing the voice of the student body with regards to environmental concerns, I chair the Environment Subcommittee. The subcommittee and I work to put on events that aim to raise awareness about environmental issues.
This year we have many exciting environmentally-focused events and opportunities for you to get involved. Our biggest event is Green Week, which will be on the 4th week of semester 1 (the 9th to the 15th of October), so please come along to any events if you're interested! We will also have a stand at Fresher's Fayre, so if you have any questions or ideas don't hesitate to ask.
St. Andrews already has many great environmental policies and BLEH (explain this acronym) in place, but we still can do so much more. The subcommittee is hoping to get even more students involved in promoting environmental awareness and making the university as sustainable as it can be. If you have any ideas about how we can reduce our carbon footprint, use less waste, or any other environmental concerns, please do get in contact. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach us on Facebook. We're on Instagram (st.andrews_envi.committee) and Facebook, so keep an eye out for anything interesting that's going on!
