At South & City College Birmingham we are committed to fulfilling our role in the global transition to clean energy and more sustainable living. We want to respond to the sustainability values of our students, workforce and local community and have developed several target areas for action.
Sustainability is what we can do to help the environment. Small changes to our everyday lives can have a massive impact on protecting our environment from destruction. Being more sustainable is something everyone is responsible for and together we can help make a change.
Watch our video of how we are encouraging students to be sustainable and how you can incorporate it into your everyday lives.
