In December, a group from the Global Sustainable Development (GSD) Department and the Economics Department helped the Grounds Team plant several trees. This idea was borne out of the Warwick Climate Negotiating Forum (WCNF) 2021 which took place in Term 1. Organised by and for students, the Forum asked attendees to step into the shoes of delegates from different nations to hold their own climate negotiations. Instead of handing out freebies such as pens and lanyards at the Forum, the WCNF Team chose to instead plant trees on campus; 26 trees to be exact, in light of COP26.
At the start of March, we invited some of our graduates to share their journeys from Warwick to what they're doing now. Organised by our Employability and Placement Manager, Bodrun Nahar, the event gave current students the opportunity to hear directly from alumni about their experiences of entering the world of work and further study.
