Faculty of Music

 
Green Impact

The Faculty of Music is committed to reducing its environmental impact. We hope everyone in the Faculty will join us in making our Faculty a more sustainable department.

The Green Impact Scheme is the University of Cambridge's environmental accreditation scheme. It helps support and encourage departments and colleges across the University to reduce their environmental impact and create more environmentally sustainable workplaces. Our Green Team was established in 2020 and we successfully secured a bronze award in 2021. 

To find out more about the sustainability initiatives at the University, join the Greenlines mailing list.

Spot on!

Join the University’s summer ‘Spot on!’ campaign to find out how our wildlife sightings can support a nature-friendly estate and future.
The campaign is packed full of talks and workshops, both in-person and online. From identification courses to wildlife walks, we’ve got something for everyone. See the full event schedule here.
Our first event and launch will be on 5 July with Mike Maunder, Executive Director of the Cambridge Conservation Institute and Chantal Helm from the Botanic Garden. Find out more and sign up here.
