IfM Green Team
IfM Green Team is a group of volunteers at the IfM who share a passion for inspiring our community to pursue sustainability in life, research and work. Supporting the Green Impact initiative across the University, we run fun and inclusive activities for the IfM community and our neighbours, to create a positive impact and help move towards a sustainable future for all.
Begun in 2018, the Green Team has helped the IfM to win multiple Green Impact awards from the University, including a Platinum Award for the 2019-20 academic year and an 2020-21 Excellence award for our project Regeneration at IfM: Sustainability in the time of COVID.
