England - North East

Welcome to the EAUC North East Regional Group

A welcome from the Convenor:
Kate Ridley, Sustainability Adviser, Northumbria University
Welcome to the EAUC North East Regional Group.  I hope you find the group a useful resource and a place to share and generate ideas. 
I am the Sustainability Adviser at Northumbria University, overseeing the University’s sustainability performance and implementing the University’s Environmental Management System.  My role covers all aspects of sustainability, from travel to procurement, so it certainly keeps me busy.  I have worked in sustainability within the Higher Education sector for six years now, with a particular focus on encouraging and supporting behaviour change.
Please never hesitate to get in touch and I look forward to working with you.
