Meet your Ethics and Environment Rep

Find out all about my role

MY ROLE

My role as Ethics & Environment Representative is to educate students on ethical matters and about the sustainable use of resources, support related campaigns and societies, and to promote a lower environmental impact across the campus.

ABOUT ME

I am a final year law student with an interest in the international law of climate change. My hobbies outside of university and activism are languages, football and swing dancing! I am a member of the People & Planet society at Newcastle, and am campaigning for the university to withdraw its investments from fossil fuel companies. I think everybody should stand for something, and I support all activism, whether your cause relates to gender, race, LGBT+, environment, disability, migrant rights, workers’ rights, homelessness, child abuse, rape culture, addiction, mental health, the AIDS crisis, or politics.

MY OBJECTIVES

This year I will be running a monthly Discussion Group on environmental and ethical issues, where Newcastle students can learn and share ideas or concerns about contemporary social and environmental issues. The themes will include transport, diet, energy, technology, waste and money. This will be with a view to implementing changes within the university that respond to these issues and uphold the values of the student body.

You can contact me at E.Coutin1@newcastle.ac.uk or pop into the Your Voice office just behind main reception of the SU to leave me a message.
