Environment & Ethics Committee

The Environment and Ethics committee co-ordinates campaigns and projects around sustainability and ethical concerns at the University and in the local community.

About this committee

When asked, 81% of students said they are concerned about climate change - so we are here to make your voice heard on issues you care about! Our Environment and Ethics committee drives sustainability projects here at Aberdeen - whether that's campaigning for fossil fuel divestment, lobbying for ethical procurement, expanding and promoting recycling provision, or campaigning for migrants' rights! 

If you have an idea for a campaign you would like to run or want to find ways to make a difference, we are happy to help. Have a look around the campaigning section on this website or email the Communities Officer, Lewis Macleod, at to find out what's going on and how to take action.

E&E organise and support a range of events, campaigns, and projects.

Here's just a short list of some of the groups we support and campaigns we currently run: Fossil Free / Divest Now Aberdeen, Shared Planet, The Corner Food Cooperative, Swap Shop, Fairtrade Fortnight, Student Gardens.
