Citizenship and sustainability

Why citizenship and sustainability?

Through our key curriculum principle, we aim to embed citizenship and sustainability in curricula across the University, encouraging students to develop a lifelong sense of social responsibility, citizenship and sustainable activity which they can draw upon throughout their time in Bath and beyond.

The University has also adopted eleven Climate Action Framework principles, which include the commitment in learning and teaching to:

Developing educational initiatives to build a world class reputation for high quality education on climate-related issues with global reach and scale, for example by: providing opportunities for every student to study and work on climate related issues; delivering programmes with a sustainability agenda; delivering pedagogically innovative teaching practices to reduce carbon emissions.

Vertically Integrated Projects

Innovative research and applied learning projects that enable inter-disciplinary, multi-level teams of students to work with a member of academic staff on long-term real-world projects, often focused on sustainability themes.
