Over the next few weeks, and into the New Year, we will be showcasing the incredible work carried out by FSE’s staff and students who has previously been recognised by these prestigious award to inspire 2021 entries. 

In the 2020 Awards’ outstanding contribution to environmental sustainability category, staff nominees Professor Tim O’Brien and Professor Teresa Anderson, were recognised for the bluedot festival sustainability programme. This is a dedicated programme of sustainability initiatives and awareness raising at the bluedot music and science festival. It shows a commitment to continually innovate and advance the sustainability of the festival, as well as discuss with audiences the fragility of planet earth.

Daniele Atkinson, Social Responsibility Manager, said: “We know that this has been a really challenging year, but we still want to recognise the students, staff and alumni who are doing extraordinary work. If you or someone you know has been creating a positive impact, why not apply for this year’s Making a Difference Awards?”
