duck+name greyGreenSTEMS is  a sustainable science group at the University of York open to students, researchers and staff who are interested in sustainability.

It is aimed at scientists in a broad sense, from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to Social sciences,  as we believe that each discipline provides a important angle from which to look and address our common sustainability challenges.

Formed and run by post-graduate students and staff, greenSTEMS organises informative and social events for all students and early-career researchers. 

Interested? Sign up to the mailing list by emailing greenstems@york.ac.uk and come to our socials at The Charles XII pub, Heslington on the last Thursday of every month at 17:30 for a drink and lively discussion on sustainablity!

Want to get involved? If you’re interested in being part of organising a sustainability themed event, be it a social seminar, workshop, or outreach programme then come along to our monthly planning meetings, 12:00 on the 1st Tuesday of every month, at Vanbrugh canteen.


Our vision is of a York campus where researchers are aware of global sustainability challenges and share means for tackling them.


To support York researchers in developing a holistic yet scientific approach to sustainability within a wider cross-disciplinary network.


  • Engage students and researchers across campus in a local network under the common interest for sustainable development.
  • Encourage scientists to apply a holistic thinking to their research by creating occasions for cross-department interaction and knowledge sharing.
  • Enhance the development of our members though skills training, outreach projects, seminars with invited speakers and much more!

At an international level, the greenSTEMS initiative is supported by NESSE 10505622_1440796759514551_7764211326334180296_n
(Network of Early-career Sustainable Scientists & Engineers), a non-profit organisation aiming to connect and mentor early-career green scientists around the world.
