c-change challenge


This year our staff sustainability engagement programme has a fresh new feel; we are pleased to announce the launch of the c-change challenge!

Staff across all campuses are encouraged to get involved and form a team, who together will work on monthly challenges and compete against other teams throughout the university!

This year there will be 7 monthly challenges between January and July, with the awards event taking place in August.

How does the c-change challenge work?
Starting in January, we will reveal a monthly challenge to the university. Each monthly challenge will focus on a different sustainability theme, e.g carbon, travel, reuse, recycling and water.
Each challenge will have a number of actions for teams to complete. Each action will be worth a certain number of points depending on the level of difficulty. Teams are encouraged to complete as many actions during the month as they can, to earn as many points as possible and climb the leaderboard!
Dip in & out!
Teams do not have to participate in every monthly challenge, they can dip in and out and choose the challenges that they would like to tackle.
Why should we participate?
As well as contributing to the university’s commitment to sustainability, the challenges will give you the chance to meet new people within your department, encourage your colleagues to think about sustainability, and work with others from across the organisation.
Teams will be competing for their position on the prestigious leaderboard and ultimately to win the most points overall – because as we all know, points mean prizes!
