Better World Showcase 2019

Celebrating how our Faculty is Making a Difference

To recognise and communicate the outstanding Social Responsibility activities across the Faculty of Science and Engineering, we are holding the fourth annual Better World Showcase. The Showcase celebrates the important contribution our Faculty makes to social and environmental impact, highlights the efforts of staff and students who are ‘making a difference’, and will hopefully inspire others to do the same.

For 2019 there are eight award categories and 45 nominations. Each nomination has been made into a poster which you can see in the Virtual Showcase. Click on each of the category titles below to see the nominees’ posters.

The posters are also going on a roadshow on campus. They will be displayed in the Renold Building Concourse from 14-18 January and in the University Place Drum from 21-25 January.

Vote for your favourite nomination for the People's Vote award

We invite staff and students to have their say in the People’s vote, an additional award in the Showcase. Voting is open from Thursday 11 January and will close at 9am on Monday 28 January.

The winners in all categories will be announced at the Better World Showcase celebration event on Wednesday 6 February.
