The Golden Dandelion Awards: Submissions Open for Awarding Sustainable Modules

Monday 6 June 2022

The Sustainability in the Curriculum Committee is accepting submissions for the module best engaging students in education for sustainable development, with the chance to win £150 in book tokens, and submissions for this prestigious award close on Thursday June 23rd.



The Golden Dandelion was created in 2021, with the aim of celebrating modules that challenge traditional understandings of teaching sustainability, awarding modules across all different schools of the university.

Modules awarded the Golden Dandelion are recognised for their excellence in education for sustainable development by the Sustainability in the Curriculum Golden Dandelion Sub-committee. The award acts as a signpost for students and staff to find modules that provide enhanced environmental literacy. 

All academics and disciplines have a role to play in sustainability. Whether investigating behaviour change, reflecting on climate justice, enhancing biodiversity, or analysing net zero solutions, all can develop competencies for students to consider the future and pursue better outcomes by learning from the past, to think critically about the present, and to work with others.

The award criteria includes creativity and innovation, inter-or trans-disciplinary engagement, sustainability capacity, competencies developments and skills, and engaging students with real world examples that impact sustainability. If you believe that the students of your module do the above, apply for the Golden Dandelion here

Submissions close on Thursday 23rd of June and the winner will be announced in September 2022! Along with the prestige of the award, winners will be awarded £150 in book tokens.

Best of luck to those that apply!
