Sustainability Month 2020

December 2020 is Sustainability Month in the College of Social Sciences. The Sustainability IRT will be hosting events, learning about initiatives, hearing from community groups and releasing new content on this page throughout the month to mark global events that tie into the United Nations' blueprint for action, set out as 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

International Mountain Day Photo Competition

Falling on 11 December, International Mountain Day recognises the critical roles of mountain environments to sustain biodiversity, human and animal populations and water supplies worldwide.

In celebration, we are holding the Sustainability International Mountain Day Photo Competition.

To enter, head to our Submission Form, upload your favourite mountain image and tell us why you love it.

Entries close on 7 December and the prize-winning entry will be announced on 11 December.

As many submitted photos as possible will also be included in a virtual exhibition on our pages and so we ask that you only submit images that can be used in this way.





Our aim is to lead social science research to develop sustainable responses to global challenges in four key areas:

Health - Sustaining health and wellbeing for people living on low income

Literacies - Literacies, learning and cultural practice for sustainability

Ecologies - Environmental sustainability under climate change and human activities

Governance - Reforming governance and management systems of natural resources
