This week was the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development. We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to announce that Cycling4All were in attendance, having won the Salon Video Competition for a video they produced on the holistic concept of sustainability.
Cycling4All project coordinator Adam Tasker entered the video for the award on behalf of the filmmaker Jess Waite. “I thought the video excellently represented what sustainability is in an easy to understand manner and that it showed the impact that sustainable commuting can have on the environment, particularly for disabled students”, he explained.
“It highlights the fact that anyone can live more sustainably by being aware of the impact that our everyday actions can have on future generations”
Winning this award is a huge testament to the impact Students’ Green Fund and projects like Cycling4All are having here in the UK, and to be recognised by UNESCO on a global platform is absolutely sensational. Education for sustainable development is a huge priority for NUS as we start to shape curriculums to help all students get the skills and experiences they need to tackle our social, economic and environmental problems.
This video shows exactly why it’s so important.
