“Green Dragons” is an exciting project run in partnership with City University London Students’ Union (CULSU), City Environment Team, City Enterprise Office and numerous other professionals across the university! We want to help people at City University, who have an idea to improve sustainability here or in the local community, to bring it to life!
The scheme is open to students and staff (professional services and academics alike) champions and academics who have identified opportunities, big or small to make a difference. Projects can benefit from funding of up to £3.000.
City University students receive training and support from experts across the University, and are ready to become the Green Dragons Leaders! They’ll develop skills to become future community builders, leaders of change and will be more employable than ever! We have environmental and communication experts, project funds, rooms, contacts, everything a student needs to turn their idea into a reality!
City staff also receive support from experts across the university and are now closer than ever to deliver their own sustainability project and making a positive change!
