Eco Society

Heriot Watt Eco Society is a safe space for like-minded people to chat about tips for sustainable living and discuss the big environmental matters. Keep up to date with our events here!

Welcome to the Heriot Watt Eco Society!

Where anyone interested in sustainable and environmentally friendly living can meet and discuss ideas.

No matter how big or small your interest is and even if you can only do little things here and there, every contribution to help the planet counts!

Our aims as a society are:

  • To encourage the university to improve their environmental policies and create more ambitious targets
  • To increase more opportunities on-campus to be sustainable 
  • To combat climate anxiety and create a friendly and inclusive community that supports each other
  • To highlight the insectionality of environmentalism
  • To raise awareness of environmental issues and empower students with knowledge
  • To push for climate action and pursue climate justice
  • To raise money for environmental causes

We host a wide-range of events such as potlucks, litterpicks, eco talks from our very own lecturers, protest marches, eco shop crawls, cook-alongs, film nights, tree planting, beach cleans and much more!

The allotments on the Heriot-Watt campus are open to all students. Whether you're an expect gardener or completely new to it, anyone can go along and plant whatever they want and the end result is some delicious fruit and veg for your dinner. Who doesn't love to eat food with ZERO food miles!
