Energize Worcester and Worcester Students’ Union have been nominated for a prestigious Green Gown Award for the first time, underlining the Students’ Union’s persistent commitment to sustainability.

The awards, run by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) and now in their tenth year, recognise ‘exceptional sustainability initiatives’ being undertaken in universities and colleges across the UK, and are regarded as the most prestigious recognition of best practice within the sector.

The Worcester Students’ Union’s Energize Worcester project has been shortlisted for the Technical Innovation for Sustainability prize. this is the first time for the Students’ Union to be recognised for their efforts in sustainability, as Peng Li, Energize Worcester Project Manager, said:

“As a Students’ Union, we regard sustainability as a top priority, therefore we are thrilled that, in our first year of entering these awards, Energize Worcester has been nominated in the Technical Innovation category.

“The project is student-led, and uses an innovative online feedback system to help student tenants learn more about energy consumption and to encourage them to adopt appropriate energy habits for life.”

In all, 102 projects representing 62 institutions are nominated, with the winners to be announced at the Green Gown 2014 Award Ceremony in Manchester in November.
