These contributions were gathered during a meeting of the SAU Climate & Sustainability Sub Group on 27th October 2021. This is by no means a definitive list, as there is so much going on over the next couple of weeks, it's just a selection. If you have any further examples of projects, events, exhibitions, and workshops that you would like us to share, please email [email protected], and we can include them here. The C & S Sub group meets once a month online and all SAU members are welcome, if you'd like to join us, just email and let us know and we will send you the link. Thanks!
