Manifesto Summary: 

Hey! My name is Seher and I would love to be your part time sustainability officer over the next year. Studying geography has refined my understanding of the complexities of environmental issues, and my passion to increase awareness and implementation of policies and practices that are more ethical and environmentally friendly. Having partaken in a wide range of environment-related volunteering and education projects, including pioneering The Environmental Justice Project here at UCL, training with the Environmental Law Foundation, volunteering with the London Wildlife Trust and organising events to raise the profile of environmental activism amongst BME communities, I believe I have the necessary skills, experience and drive to enable me to effect change, and the ability to work with and learn from a wide range of groups in order to do so.

What I aim to do:

• Promote the use of solar energy

• Lobby UCL into divesting from fossil fuels

• Increase awareness of how to address urban environmental issues at local scales

• Ensure UCL East accommodation meets energy performance ratings and the new developments are affordable and sustainable for students

• Work to reduce food waste in UCL and the Students Union by partnering with local charities and initiatives that reuse leftover food
