Responsible Futures at DMU
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
- Karl Letten, Environment and Sustainability Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org
