Sustainability Hub: The Nest project



Warwick Nest logo

The Nest Project is a student-led initiative to promote sustainability and student leadership in higher education. We are leading the construction of the Nest Building, a strawbale building on the University of Warwick's campus.

We are are also founding the Nest Group, an initiative to to encourage students to make active, substantial contributions to their University.


We are looking to achieve two main things with the Nest:

  1. To prove that students can make meaningful contributions to their learning environments, and move past their role as mere consumers of education.
  2. To showcase Warwick as a leader in sustainable design, and hopefully set a precedent for future university buildings.



Once the project is formally approved, the project's existence, and aims in championing sustainability and student leadership should be publicised.

We want everyone on campus to know what the Nest is, and most importantly, why it's there.
