Residences Sustainability Officer, Dan Reeves (he/him)

Embeds sustainability across LSE’s managed halls of residence.  

• #SustainableLSE halls campaign in partnership with SOS-UK

• ReLove in halls

• Sustainable Projects Fund 

More about our Residences Sustainability Officer

I work with the eight LSE-managed halls to embed sustainability within them. One of the largest engagement programmes is the University of London’s “Reduce the Juice” (nothing to do with drinking!) which is a friendly inter-hall competition to save ‘Energy’, ‘Waste’ and ‘Water’. 

I am also heavily involved with working with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) on the end of year ‘Relove’ collections, where we divert items that may have been thrown out to the BHF. Last year this totalled 9.6 tonnes or items worth around £16,800 for BHF! 

I get to work on a really diverse range of projects within sustainability, and one of my favourite aspects has to be biodiversity in the form of the LSE Bees!
