Staff Involvement

An Introduction to Sustainability at Lincoln

During the “Lincoln Welcome” induction at the University we introduce staff to sustainability at Lincoln and how they can get involved.

There’s further information available regarding becoming Staff ECO Champions to encourage colleagues to save energy, recycle more effectively and implement their own sustainability initiatives on the internal portal; or you can email for further information.


The Kitchen Garden

We are always looking for more volunteers to help nurture our “Kitchen Garden”. You can find out more about this project by visiting our Edible Campus page. Email our team if you’re interested in getting involved.

Environmental Films

We have a fantastic collection of films that can be made available to staff and students. Please email for further information of the films on offer.

The Great Holiday Switch Off

Over Christmas the University closes down for almost two weeks. During this period we ask that all staff and students take time to help reduce our energy consumption, thus lowering our carbon footprint.
