Abstract Over the past year, members of GreenBRIDGE and CUECS (Cambridge University Environmental Consulting Society) have been working on an ongoing project to produce ‘Sustainable Strategies in Cambridge Colleges’, a report on the current state of college sustainability. Inspired by work carried out by CUECS on the Green League Table over the last few years, this project has seen volunteers interviewing a range of different stakeholders including college staff, students and local architects, gathering information on different green projects, reaching a third of colleges so far.
This seminar will present the findings of the project so far, showing some key project case studies that have been identified so far, and discussing the strategies adopted. The session will also include presentations from Dick Taplin, Junior Bursar of Downing College, to discuss recent measures and initiatives that Downing has put in place to reduce the college’s environmental impact, and from Jonathan Capek of Caroe Architecture, discussing the recent work on the St John’s School of Pythagoras, turning the oldest academic building in Cambridge into the college’s new archive centre.
This talk is part of the Sustainability in the Built Environment (GreenBRIDGE) series.
