NUS Responsible FuturesResponsible Futures is a structured approach to embedding social responsibility and sustainability across a university’s curriculum.

It is coordinated nationally by the National Union of Students (NUS), and offers a practical framework to develop and audit activities towards Education for the Sustainable Development Goals at universities.

Student-led auditing is based upon a range of criteria, such as having a strategic commitment to act on sustainability, employing real-world learning experiences on sustainability issues and running events and educational programmes for staff, students and the general public.

DMU’s participation is a partnership between the university and De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU). As a participant, De Montfort benefits from mentoring support and networking events with other UK universities.

In 2018/19 we focused on developing activities and evidence towards a student-led audit that took place in March 2019.

DMU staff and students are invited to support this process by:

  • Sharing your stories of events and activities that contribute to the Responsible Futures criteria
  • Staff using the criteria to provide ideas on embedding sustainability into taught courses
  • Students volunteering to take part in auditing our progress
