Booth 1 - Our Campus and Facilities
Who's in this booth?
In this booth you can explore our Virtual Reality Experience videos showcasing our grounds and the various buildings and campuses. If you have a Virtual Reality headset, get it ready so you can then experience some of the videos in 360° view! If you don’t have one, don’t worry, you will still be able to watch the video and move around with your mouse or by moving your mobile phone. You will see some of our state-of-the-art and industry standard facilities and see where we’ve invested in recent years.
In this booth you'll also have the opportunity to chat with members of the Envirosoc, our student society dedicated to environmental issues.
In March 2020, UCC celebrated 10 years since becoming the first university in the world to be awarded a Green Flag from the Foundation for Environmental Education and we have successfully renewed our Green Flag a record-breaking four times. In fact, the global Green Campus Programme, which is active in 21 countries, is a movement that was started by UCC students. How cool is that?
Green Campus was the brainchild of our very own Envirosoc students, and the president of that society now serves as co-chair of our Green Campus Committee. The Deputy President of our Students’ Union is the other co-chair. Green Campus is student-led and is strongly supported by the UCC Societies Guild, our Clubs Executive as well as the wider UCC community. Our students also engage on a national stage, for example representing UCC Green Campus at the national Green Campus Ireland summits. We take our sustainability citizenship very seriously here!
When you become a UCC student you can register for the university wide module on sustainability.
