What we’re doing (University activity)
River Monster Project
The River Monster Project is a city-wide collaboration where plastic waste from the River Soar has been collected and made into a Loch Ness style monster to illustrate the problem of plastic pollution in the city.
As well as providing volunteers, academics from the University are researching the impact of plastics on water quality
Geography Student Society
The Geography student society successfully bid for SEED funding to run an awareness raising campaign using metal water bottles as a reward for staff and students to pledge to behave more sustainably.
