What is Big Impact?

Big Impact is a programme run by Manchester Met's Environment Team to encourage staff and students to live and think more sustainably. 


What does it include?

We offer a wide range of events, activities, learning and volunteering opportunities to students, staff and community members. These range from film screenings and discussions, to clothes swaps, gardening workshops and bat walks! 

We work with various partners within the university and the local community including: Hulme Community Garden Centre, Stiched Up, MetMUnch, MMU Sport and Widening Participation

You can also keep up to date by signing up to our monthly newsletter - Let's make a sustainable planet.
