Podcast: The future we choose – UCU Green New Deal

Organisation name: University and College Union
Organisation location: United Kingdom

  • Education
Type of opportunity:
  • Project
Short summary: The University and College Union (UCU) are seeking student/s to create a podcast series on a Just Transition for a Green New Deal in universities and colleges. UCU will support you to identify themes for each episode but will include coverage of student and staff voice for climate justice and the 6 key areas of the UCU Green New Deal: - Climate emergency - Industrial relations - Curriculum - Energy and carbon management - Ethical investment and banking - Food and landuse

This is an exciting opportunity to raise awareness and contribute to the communications of what a green transition can look for universities and colleges. It builds on the UCU Green New Deal, which is a framework for staff in universities and colleges to use for negotiating with their employers to ensure our education institutions are making a green transition, and bringing the workforce and students with them. More information on the UCU Green New Deal can be found here:

You will be supported by staff working on environment and sustainability at UCU to identify the framing for the podcast episodes and key individuals to interview.

We are seeking someone who is a confident communicator and able to facilitate an informative and inspiring interview to be included on UCUs new podcast series.

It is likely interviews will take place online, so recordings will be through the online platforms used for the interviews (e.g. zoom). Ideally you will have some experience or an interest in editing audio materials to streamline the interviews.
