Sustainable Projects Fund
The first project funded by the Sustainable Projects Fund came to fruition in May 2012 with the opening of the Green Roof atop the Plaza Café. Students Olivier Scialom, Stanslav Bic and Sidharth Gopalan submitted the idea to the fund and implemented the new green roof with the support of Phil Newsham from Estates.
The 2011/12 fund was awarded to the ImpACT Award and Awareness Project submitted by Margaret-Ann Splawn, Isabella Neuweg, Judith Peterka and Andrew Sudmant.
