Environment Officer: Sadie Hodgson

The role of the environment officer is threefold. Firstly, to coordinate the JCR with ‘Greenspace’ – the University’s broader environmental initiatives and activities. Secondly, to run environmental campaigns within college. Thirdly, to assist college office in ensuring the activities within college, from the running of the bar to June Ball, are as low impact environmentally as possible.

Hi my name is Sadie and I’m your environment officer for the year! I’m a finalist combined honours student studying politics and economics. In my spare time I enjoy most things outdoorsy, have a passion for Castle mixed lax and am currently training for a marathon coming up in October. This year I am looking to set up an environment committee within the JCR that will act as both a forum for ideas as well as a starting base and support for new projects. Other aims are to continue the Waste Not Want Not project, establish an allotment area in Fellowes Garden, and set up a car sharing scheme within college.

I’m open to all ideas and suggestions over the year – drop me an email at sadie.hodgson@durham.ac.uk if you have any questions.
