We are thrilled to announce our Eco Heroes 2021 are:

  • Billy Currie
  • Danielle Hughes

Congratulations to our winners who will receive a £50 Costa Coffee voucher each! 

Eco Hero 2021 was launched in line with Scotland’s climate week, which ran from the 13th – 17th September and aimed to raise awareness of climate change and to encourage people to consider the actions required from all sectors of society in order to achieve a net-zero future.

Could you be our Eco Hero?

This competition is now closed.

We need to take action to change our environment and all play our part to do something out of the ordinary.

We want to hear about the big and small things you do (or are planning to do!) in everyday life to help make a change. This can be any act to help the environment - whether that be collecting rubbish from the beach to just simply buying and using a reusable coffee cup. Every change will count towards a net-zero society!

Students, staff and members of the public - pledge today to do something you wouldn’t normally do and go the extra mile, think more responsibly and be kinder to your environment!

We want to hear the best Eco-Hero stories and in return we will reward three entries with a £50 Costa Coffee voucher!!

Comment on our Eco-Hero social media posts, along with photos – make sure to tag and use #ecohero for a chance to win a prize and become our Eco-Hero of 2021.

This competition is now closed.
