Green initiatives are exceptionally important at the moment, especially due to the looming threats that are coming with climate change. Maintaining a sustainable environment is no easy task, and requires careful research, planning, and execution for it to be successful. As a physics student, I have studied sustainability as a part of my degree, and found that there are relatively, simple things that students can do to be more sustainable. What must be done is to make sure students are aware of what they are able to do to positively impact the environment. As president, I will be liaising closely with the sustainability team at the university to ensure and challenge policies brought forward for the union and the university to be more sustainable. Whilst I have studied aspects of sustainability as a part of my degree, I haven’t conducted any formal research in environmental and climate science. However, as a part of my degree I have undertaken a research project, and feel confident I will be able to conduct research into climate science and environmental issues.
