At UWTSD we are committed to sustainability and strive to adopt a green approach at every opportunity. If you, like us, believe in moving towards a greener future, you might enjoy these ideas for more sustainable study. Get involved! Taking notes in lectures If you’re concerned by the amount of paper you’re getting through in lectures, try a free app like Evernote. Evernote is a note-taking app which allows you to hand-write, draw or type, add audio recordings, links and attachments for thorough and efficient lecture notes. It will give you a great deal of flexibility, letting you adopt whatever method best suits your learning style. Another bonus is that your notes will stay as they are. They won’t become untidy or crumpled and they’ll all be kept in one place permanently, which will undoubtedly come in handy over exam periods. It is a brilliant solution for paper waste, and definitely worth a try. If you enjoy sharing your notes with friends on your course, a platform like Evernote or OneDrive will make collaboration easy. Cut down on post-it notes Whether you use them to create to-do lists, bookmarks, or like to plaster your flat with them during revision, we’re all guilty of using hundreds of post-it notes over the course of our studies. Instead, why not adopt a paperless approach? Download an app like Google Keep onto your device to categorise your thoughts and filter using colour. It’s easy to use, and will synchronise across your devices so that your ideas are always within reach. If you’re a visual learner, this might be the perfect revision tool for you. If there’s something you’re particularly struggling with, why not set your notes as the lock screen on your phone? You’ll soon absorb that information! Use the Online Library UWTSD’s Online…

Maritime transport is already responsible for approximately 2.5 percent of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) – and to avoid this increasing even further, the industry must take drastic steps to transform its operations. Shipping companies are already turning to cleaner fuel types or installing new equipment.
Furloughed from her hospitality job during the first lockdown, Hannah Russo was trying to sell her child’s baby clothes when she found many other mothers trying to do the same. From there has come Babybundle, a website where parents can buy and sell bundles of often unused clothes to each other. “Many mums are gifted baby clothes, or have seen how quickly their babies outgrow clothes, with some not even worn due to size and seasonality. The mums share the interest to pass on these clothes. Secondhand is no longer second best – it comes with many benefits: economically, sustainability, and also mums supporting one another,” she says.
