About Live Smart
Live Smart is our new student-led project in sustainability. It aims to help you to live in smarter ways that have a positive impact on your wellbeing, save you money, improve your local community, and benefit the wider planet.
It’s part of a wider programme of sustainability work here at UoG that goes way beyond just ‘greening the campus’. For us, sustainability is not about boring stereotypes – it’s the excitement of creativity, innovation and changing the status quo, so we can all think, learn and work differently to shape a better future for people and the planet.
Did you know we’re number 2 in the UK University league for sustainability?
