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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
(Network of Early-career Sustainable Scientists & Engineers), a non-profit organisation aiming to connect and mentor early-career green scientists around the world.
