The nomination for the Campaign Award focuses on the launch of RGU’s Zero Waste Community Café, which is the first of its kind in Scotland.

Edward Pollock, student President of Communication and Democracy at RGU:Union said, “This year has been incredibly busy for RGU:Union. With big changes in the university, we have worked hard to represent student’s views and launch ground-breaking new projects for new students, such as the Zero Waste Café, Academic Calendar Review and Live Right Campaign. I am incredibly proud to see that once again the work of our team has been recognised and I really hope that these amazing projects can be recognised.”

When announcing the shortlist, Vonnie Sandlan, President of NUS Scotland said, “[..] This is the part of my job that is most exciting, that is, seeing [Students’ Unions] being recognised for all the work you have done to make students’ lives better, make students experiences stronger and that our students are able to get the absolute best out of their education.”
