The AberGreen project has ended as of the 31st of March 2020. You can still view resources, reports, and find out more about sustainability here.

AberGreen is a community-led sustainability education project.

Our aim is to help the uni community reduce its carbon footprint through fun, interactive skills-building events, whilst building on the strong sense of community in Aberdeen.

Our motto is:

Learn - Grow - Have Fun!

Our monthly events include:

We were funded by The Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) which provides grants and support for community-led organisations to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions.
