Become a Green Capital Change Maker

The Change Maker Award marks the contribution of UWE Bristol students and staff to European Green Capital 2015. As well as being great for Bristol, it is great for your CV!

To date, UWE Bristol Change Makers have contributed over 60,000 hours of their time to sustainable activities – that’s over 34 years worth of work! This is a huge achievement, do you want to be a part of it?

To receive the Change Maker Award, complete 7 hours of activity with a sustainability focus - environmental, social, economic, or cultural. If you’re already doing your bit for Bristol you might qualify right now for the award or if you’ve done 25 hours of sustainable activity then you are eligible to be a Gold Change Maker.

It doesn’t matter if your activity takes place in 2016, beyond the Green Capital 2015 year. The Change Maker award will continue to recognise and reward students efforts to help tackle sustainability issues.

Once you have completed your activity let us know by submitting either the Change Maker form or the Gold Change Maker form, and we will send you your certificate.

Each month, students who have applied to be Change Makers will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £50 Your Street Gift Cards.
