Working in partnership with Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, Stranmillis University College is delighted to become the first Eco Campus in Northern Ireland.

The college occupies an 18 hectare (46 acre) site in South Belfast and has made a long term commitment to reduce the environmental impact of its business activities. Key themes to be addressed in the 2018/19 year include the promotion of active travel to reduce the use of cars, promoting biodiversity on campus and reducing the amount of paper used on campus. Planned work includes: increased facilities for, and access to bikes; wild flower meadows and outdoor learning; and a programme to make greater use of electronic documents to reduce the amount of printing and paper use.

Commenting on the initiative, the Chair of the Eco Group, Dr David McKee, said “This is an exciting development for Stranmillis University College which will enable us to reduce our environmental impact and to educate staff and students about the importance of environmental issues and what practical steps can be taken to address them."
