News: College Survey Finds Strong Support for Sustainability.


Published Online: 17th November 2019


New research conducted in the summer of 2019 and released today reveals broad support for slashing the environmental footprint at St Edmund Hall (SEH). The results of a survey conducted by undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate teaching fellow members (JCR, MCR, and SCR, respectively, also known as “aularians”), not only uncover an 86% approval of this goal but also outline a series of ideas and concerns that should be considered along the way.

It is a point of pride that our 750 year-old institution has just released its first-ever 10-year strategy with several bold goals, including one “to become the greenest college in Oxford…” In parallel, the Teddy Going Green aularian-led survey collected perspectives on sustainability priorities for the college from 157 participants across the JCR, MCR, SCR, and full-time staff (18% of the college community of 888). The results, released in today’s report, illuminate a comprehensive set of insights into how the Hall may begin to achieve its goal.
