“The level and breadth of the work completed at The Students' Union at UWE is extremely impressive. It is clear to see that sustainability is at the heart of everything they do and a key driver in their strategic plan. The work they have done around fashion, period poverty, action on sustainability week and engagement of students this year are great examples of the work you have completed. Congratulations to all involved, your passion shines through.”
