Discover the amazing sustainability research of the Grantham Scholars and our team at the Grantham Centre. Learn where our alumni go when they leave us. And see how our special projects at Zaatari refugee camp and in reducing plastic waste have progressed.
For this year’s report we focused on our 90+ sustainability researchers: the Grantham Scholars. These researchers come from all over the world and across disciplines to address some of sustainability’s most pressing problems. In this report we look at what they do when they leave the Grantham Centre, what they learn while they’re here, and what they’re hopes for the future are.
Plus we update from our special projects, like our packaging reuse one – Many Happy Returns. And we find out what the team have been up to this year.
Our People and the Pandemic reports on Grantham Centre activities 2020-21 with a focus on our people.
During the pandemic many had to focus on surviving, but others were able to respond. Like Grantham Scholars Philippa Hughes and Nicole Kennard who worked for a food charity throughout lockdown. Or Rohit Chakraborty who measured air pollution changes. Our Kristin Bash paused her PhD and went back into public health. And they weren’t alone.
The Grantham Centre annual report 2019 The Story Continues focuses on how Grantham Scholars past and present are doing. We find out where are alumni go, and talk to them about how being a Grantham Scholar has got them where they are.
It also includes an update on our special plastics project (more on that project here).
The Story So Far explains where the Grantham Centre is and how we got here.
In this 5 year review we show how the Grantham Scholars programme creates the sustainability leaders of the future and embeds sustainability across the University of Sheffield.
Plus we demonstrate our progress towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
