New SDG markers have been installed around the Canterbury campus that lead to our community garden project.
The Canterbury Campus is 300 acres of woodland, grassland, amenity areas and ponds. The Landscape and Grounds Team are responsible for its management, however, we all have a role in protecting this space and the wildlife that we share it with. Please take some time to explore the campus (Coming soon - nature trail information) and make a note of what you see.

The University of Kent Biodiversity Forum is made up of students and staff from across the University to discuss and lead on Biodiversity projects that will enhance our campuses. The forum also ensure that those responsible for biodiversity enhancement and protection on campus are held to account and are progressing with the University's commitments in the Landscape and Biodiversity strategy. The forum is currently looking for representation from the Medway campus, so if you are a student or staff member based there, then please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Terms of Reference
