Are your students ready to save the world? Join us on campus in June for a brand-new programme of activity, designed to demonstrate how we are preparing our undergraduates with the knowledge and skills to help tackle some of the world's greatest challenges.

We are running five days of on-campus activity from 27 June until 1 July 2022. Each day will include a variety of taster sessions on different topics all linking to the overarching theme of sustainability.

Please see below an outline of each of the five days. If you would like to bring a group of students to any of the days, please complete the form here. In order to allow as many different schools/colleges to attend, we are limiting bookings to one minibus (or 15 students) per school/college for each of the five days. Further details will be sent out in due course to those who have booked.

Themes of each day are as follows;

Monday 27 June: Earth, Ocean and the Environment

From oceans to dinner plates: are microplastics a problem? Subduction zones are deadly, but can people ever live safely with the threat of geohazards? Why aren't we 'Reducing, Reusing, Recycling' - and how do we change this? And how can a map help coastal populations adapt to climate change? Learn more about the challenges facing Earth's inhabitants and how, by studying one of these areas, you could help save the world.

Tuesday 28 June: Medicine and Health

Explore a variety of interesting sessions including Sustainable Healthcare, Climate change on Health, Digital access to Healthcare and Mental Health, and find out how our degrees are helping to save the world!

Wednesday 29 June: Social Science focus

This day focuses on a broad range of Social Science perspectives by highlighting how individuals and societies affect the world. We will cover exciting topics such as predictive policing, population growth and poverty.

Thursday 30 June: Exploring STEM

Explore pure and applied sciences and their multifaceted impact on our world’s development. From great mathematicians' blue skies thinking to their timeless impact on technological advancement in healthcare, geo-spatial mapping and cybersecurity. Explore the impact of chemistry and crystallography on predicting and designing anti-viral drugs against covid-19. Discover innovation within electronics and computer science and wider engineering such as achieving net zero in shipping and designing floating off-shore wind turbines.

Friday 1 July: Exploring the Humanities

Whether it’s plastics in our oceans or the possibility or war - nearly every decision and its consequence comes from human decisions. By understanding the Humanities we can understand what makes us human and in turn help us to look to the future to make it a better place.
