Here at Sussex, our students and staff have the skills, resources, knowledge, connections, passion and enthusiasm to rise to all of the global sustainability challenges we face, and to build one of the most progressive and sustainable universities in the world.

Sustainability Champions Network

As part of our new Sustainability Strategy, we will be recruiting a network of student and staff volunteers to get involved in implementing the strategy across our university.

There are lots of opportunities for students to get involved in sustainabilty projects. Find out more about volunteering opportunities.

Staff Volunteering Policy

Many of our staff and students are extremely active in the community. We, as an employer, want to allow all of our staff to be given time out from their day jobs to support good causes in the community.

That is why we are piloting a new staff volunteering allowance from August 2021. Our new Staff Volunteering Policy will be directly aligned with the UN SDGs and the University Sustainability Strategy. This will allow us to further maximise our contribution to the community.

The policy will give all employees on a contract of 12 months or more an allowance of at least two days per year (pro rata).

Check back here in August 2021 to read our new staff Volunteering Policy and find out how you can get involved.
