Climate Change

 

The Green Campus Committee meets once a month. Its function is to discuss, occasionally vote on, or put forward motions to make TU Dublin as environmentally friendly as possible. University staff, students, and Students Union staff members all sit on the committee.  Agenda items have previously included, for example: biodiversity, litter and recycling bins, water conservation and protection, and smoking on campus.
