Let’s make our University fit for the future
Based at the Students' Association at the University of West Scotland, the Transition project has been supporting staff, students and the wider community to reduce their impact on the environment since 2011.
You can get involved by joining in with a project, volunteering for Transition UWS or starting your own project.
Two new projects launched in 2012 to give staff and students the knowledge and skills to live a lower carbon lifestyle that does not cost the Earth.
Sustainable Food Project
If eating a healthy balanced diet is important to you, if you’ve always wanted to learn how to make tasty food from scratch, decrease the amount of processed foods you eat and the amount of food that is wasted this project is for you.
Activities will include free cookery workshops, cooking competitions, online cooking videos and recipe sharing, food diaries, your own Come Dine With Me dinner parties, and many tips and resources for a healthy, planet friendly diet.
Lower Carbon Living Project
Ever wondered what is the link between our lifestyle choices and climate change? Transition UWS with the support of trained facilitators for the UWS community will roll out a programme of Your Money, Your Planet and Carbon Conversations workshops. These workshops consist of six informal sessions looking at food, energy, transport and waste through the lens of climate change; discussing the issues over tea and cake, establishing individuals baselines for each participant and devising a personal plan of action for carbon reduction.
