SustainaWHAT?! is a multi-disciplinary, student/ staff co-created, cross-faculty and now crossinstitutional collaborative project which encourages PGRs to explore the relationship between the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and their research, with a focus on their professional and personal development. Initiated in 2021 by Ros Beaumont at Newcastle University’s multi, inter and transdisciplinary School ‘X’. This question chimed with Julie Gwilliam (Cardiff University) and Fiona Cownie (Bournemouth University) when they attended a joint student / staff presentation at the 2021 AdvanceHE Sustainability Symposium. Come and find about what we've done so far and our future plans.
