Better World Showcase 2019
Celebrating how our Faculty is Making a Difference
The Better World Showcase aims to raise awareness of the inspirational activity that goes on in our Faculty relating to Social Responsibility and to demonstrate the important contribution our staff and students make to social and environmental impact, ‘making a difference’, and to hopefully inspire others to do the same.

The Better World Showcase, the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s social responsibility awards, took place on Wednesday 6 February in the Great Hall. The event celebrated staff and students who are ‘making a difference’ through projects which benefit society or the environment.

The event was hosted by Professor Martin Schröder, Dean of the Faculty, and Rachel Brealey, Director of Faculty Operations, who praised the number and variety of projects and the commitment of those involved to social responsibility. Many of the judges who presented the awards commented on the high quality of the 45 nominations and how difficult this made the judging process. As a result a number of projects were highly commended in addition to those who won the award in each of the nine categories. In total 21 outstanding projects were recognised.
