Don’t boycott the Green League?

The following quote is taken from a blog written by Piers Telemacaque, NUS Vice-President (Society & Citizenship)on Sept 2nd 2014:

“You don’t need me to tell you how important it is that students have their voices heard on sustainability. That’s why People & Planet is such a vital student network for ethical and environmental activism, and why NUS is a proud supporter of their work – especially the Green League. The Green League offers us an independent assessment of sustainability in universities across the UK. We know that this is a critical issue for students, which is why they look at the Green League to get transparency on their institution’s ethical and environmental credentials. It allows the sector to see which institutions are taking sustainability seriously and, more importantly, spot those that aren’t. And it’s not just students who want to know this, but the wider public too. That’s why it’s so essential.  Read the full blog here: Piers Telemacque – Don’t boycott the Green League.”

The measured plea from Piers Telemacque NUS Vice-President (Society & Citizenship) is not to be ignored and it is hard to agree with what he says. However, there does need to be proper engagement between those who design the Green League and those who participate. The feedback the Higher Education sector has given People & Planet should be listened to and acted upon. As Director of Sustainability at The University of Nottingham I can confirm we ARE participating in this years Green League, but we hope for greater levels of collaboration between all parties and support the comments made by The EAUC and AUDE.
