Environmental Placement Programme Awards

Thursday 01 September 2011

Charlotte Owen, who graduated with a 2.1 MA Honours degree in Geography in June 2011, has won the final of the EPP awards in Edinburgh.

The Environmental Placement Programme places students within Scottish Businesses to undertake projects with an environmental focus. It provides businesses with focused, low cost practical environmental support, whilst providing students with paid work experience in a commercial environment. Charlotte worked with a timber firm in Leven, Fife, and produced a report on energy saving which would save them £46,000 a year.
