SRC PIC 201516Hi my name is Luke, I am a second year Community Development student and I am running to be your environmental officer again.

Over the past two years, I have worked for Glasgow University Environmental Sustainability Team, Glasgow University Climate Action Society, the SRC Environmental Campaign, and People and Planet, a UK-wide network of environmental and social justice activists.

I have campaigned successfully for GU to divest from Fossil Fuels, ran several disco litter pick-ups, worked alongside GUEST for Go Green Week, organised many events for GUCA and supported environmental groups across Scotland with their Fossil Free campaign.

If elected:
My main goal will be to ensure that environmental sustainability becomes a priority for GU.

  • I will continue to advocate for more carbon reductions, more biodiversity and green spaces on campus and especially in the new Western Infirmary, and more ethical procurement.
  • I will campaign for GU to take part in the People and Planet University League 2016, the only UK league table to measure ethics and sustainability.
  • I will establish a Green Action Fund, with the proceeds from carrier bag charges on campus and the local community. Anyone can apply to fund an environmentally focused project.
