Sustainability Week: 21 - 25 March 2022

Organised by Sustainable Imperial and the Imperial College Union, this year's Sustainability Week was packed with panel discussions, talks and interactive events on sustainability at Imperial and beyond.

We celebrated the Imperial research that is helping us transition to a zero-pollution society and looking at the action we’re taking on our own campuses to make Imperial’s operations Net Zero by 2040. 

Each day had its own theme, with a corresponding screening of The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet documentaries. 

 Some of the events were recorded and we have compiled a playlist below, so you can catch up on any that you have missed.
