Be sustainable, get rewarded

(14 May 2021)

We are launching a pilot of My Greenspace to show that your small actions can make a big difference this term. My Greenspace is an online platform and app that rewards you for completing positive actions that will improve the environment and your own wellbeing. With lots of activities to choose from including a fast fashion pledge, food waste quiz and four-minute shower challenge, there’s plenty to get involved with.

For each positive action, you will earn Green Points. Each month, the four individuals with the most Green Points will win a £20 voucher. At the end of the three-month pilot, the College with the most Green Points per person will win £200 for their favourite charity.

We're looking for 50 staff and student to join our three-month pilot (May-July) and have your say in the future of My Greenspace.

There are spaces available for members of:

  • Josephine Butler
  • Grey
  • Ustinov
