The Better Health session is part of a series of open sessions where you will be able to gain a greater understanding of social responsibility and civic engagement at our University, hear how our social responsibility and civic engagement strategy results in real actions and impact and see how we are making a difference regionally, nationally and internationally.

- Social Responsibility and Civic Engagement: Social Inclusion (14 February)
- Social Responsibility and Civic Engagement: Environmental Sustainability (19 April)

Participants can attend as many or as few sessions as they wish.

These sessions are aimed at all staff and students who are interested in how our University is making a positive difference to society and the environment through our Social Responsibility and Civic Engagement Plan. The content will be useful to anyone who wishes to find out more about the impact of our social responsibility activities, key people behind its delivery and our plans for the future.
Chaired by senior leaders, the sessions will be delivered by managers and beneficiaries of our programmes to provide real-life examples of our impact. There will be time for Q&As and feedback. Each session will last approximately 45 minutes.
