Making a positive difference
Our initiatives make a positive difference to people and communities, locally and globally.
Bristol Natural History Consortium (BNHC)
During the festival interactive sessions are run by our academic staff and students. This gives school pupils, families and the general public the chance to learn something new about the natural world.
UWE’s Pro Bono service provides free legal advice to members of the public by staff and students working in partnership with practising legal professionals.
This is a chance for students to gain real world legal experience and provide a valuable service to the local community.
Hear about some of the legal work our students have been involved in.
Bristol's Big Green Week
UWE actively works towards building a sustainable future and as part of this aim we actively support Bristol’s Big Green Week.
This is an opportunity for our staff and students to share their knowledge on sustainability.
The Bristol Kenya Partnership
In partnership with the charity Umoja, The Bristol Kenya Partnership, UWE is working towards fostering meaningful and lasting sporting, educational, cultural and commercial links between Bristol and Kenya.
Staff and students have volunteered to help improve local sports pitches and facilities, and helped to train young athletes and their teachers in Tsavo, Kenya. This allowed our students to learn about different cultures and develop their leadership and problem solving skills.
