The LCF Sustainable Projects Fund (SPF) is a prize fund to support students and staff-led projects to enhance sustainability on campus and is funded by the Pro Vice-Chancellor, Professor Frances Corner OBE.

The SPF aims to contribute to the advancement of environmental, social and economic sustainability as a whole at the College.

There are certain areas for specific consideration, which are listed here to help indicate the types of projects which are appropriate.

  • Education and Awareness
  • Community
  • Carbon Management
  • Biodiversity and Green Spaces
  • Waste
  • Energy
  • Water

The fund also aims to improve engagement of the LCF community with sustainability issues. Therefore, the SPF is open to all LCF staff and students, as well as alumni up to six months after their graduation. Furthermore it actively seeks to empower and engage those who would not normally be involved with sustainability as well as those who do not have the resources to undertake worthwhile sustainability projects.
