  • To inform staff of the University's environmental commitments and to give staff the knowledge they need to contribute to meeting these targets
Environmental Sustainability Induction webinar new Thu 18 Apr 2019   12:00 Finished

« Description not available »

  • This training session aims to give staff and students at the University who are keen to reduce their environmental impact an idea of how to measure and monitor the impact of changes they make. We’ll look at useful sources of data, review case studies of what others have done to measure their impact and communicate it to colleagues, and try out some practical exercises to work out the environmental ‘footprint’ of activities associated with energy, waste, travel and purchasing.
  • Training will be provided in two parts. Attendees can book on one or both sessions. Session 1 is the workshop. Session 2 is lunch and a drop in session

Join us for this lunchtime talk, which is part of the Environment and Energy section's Spotlight on Energy month. This event focuses on the fantastic energy research being carried out across the University; research into how we produce energy, research on how better to design buildings to use less energy and finally, research on human behaviour when it comes to energy use.

  • Speakers: Arfa Karani of the Department of Physics, Dr Ruchi Chaudhary of the Department of Engineering, Rebecca Ward of the Department of Engineering and Dr Christina Pensaco of POLIS.

Creating a Team Charter new Mon 21 Mar 2022   14:00 Finished


A Team Charter is a written document created by colleagues within a team to purposefully communicate and work together. Co-creating a Team Charter is a way of establishing clarity of purpose, defining operational responsibilities within and for the team, and a way to ensure challenges can be approached respectfully and with accountability.

Teams are always evolving and developing. Over the last 2 years, teams have had to adapt in so many new ways and, for many, has forced us to look at what works and what doesn’t, especially in a hybrid environment. Purposeful communication about how we want to work together is really beneficial to all members of the team, and is really helpful for new team members too.

Creating a Team Charter can be led by the manager, group or team lead, or by a member of the team, or as a peer activity. Everyone will be involved, and there are various ways of approaching it.
