The interventions to reduce the environmental impact of the organisation during its pre-selection and selections processes focused on the following activities:
• Investigative approach about waste and candidates were all very excited about implementing their ideas in the colleges.
• Candidates were asked to bring their lunch but without disposable plastic water bottles and wrapping materials. As a result, candidates brought reusable bottles and lunch boxes.
• The NC has sent out a survey to current Portuguese UWC students to understand what is being implemented at the schools and propose further sustainability actions and projects.
• Has created a survery to send out to Portuguese students at the United World Colleges to understand which sustainability projects there are and how to better support them in initiating new activities.
