Welcome to our new Sustainability Intern

Welcome to Anya Kaufman, our new Sustainability Intern! She’ll be working with our dedicated Environment Team who work to fulfil the University’s sustainability agenda.

Anya graduated from the University of St Andrews this June with a degree in Sustainable Development. While a student Anya helped to revitalise the Sustainable Development Society and was the society President for two years. She plans on using this experience as well as the knowledge she gained from her course to continue working on projects fostered by previous Sustainability Interns, and starting some of her own!

Much of Anya’s role will be focusing on outreach and engagement with students, staff, and the wider community. You’ll see her working with student societies and Transition at different events such as the Green Fayre, Green Week, and the Fairtrade Fortnight. She’ll also be heavily involved with the Environmental Hall Reps and Environmental Facilitators Network. If you want to get involved with any of those projects or really anything that involves the environment team, please send Anya a message at ak246@st-andrews.ac.uk. She’s always keen to hear about new ideas to improve the university’s level of sustainability from reducing the use of disposable coffee cups to conducting interdisciplinary sustainability research.

Anya will also be the one updating the Environment Team’s Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, and this blog! You can follow our social media pages at:
