NUS Responsible Futures Feedback Report 2020
This outlines findings, successes and opportunities for enhancement.
Sustainable Skills Survey
As part of the reaccreditation process for Responsible Futures in 2020 and 2022, we ran a Sustainability Skills Survey in conjunction with SOS-UK. The student survey looked at attitudes, experiences and expectations associated with sustainability at UCEM. You can view highlights from both 2020 and 2022 in the infographics below.

A series of individual freely available CPD learning packages have been produced, available via our Online Academy, which support and informs curricula on ‘future skills’ for sustainability within the construction, surveying and property industries, which include:
Horizons: A Sustainability Case Study
This provides an account of our relocation to the new UCEM premises in 2016, and showcases how an inefficient 1980s building in central Reading was converted into our sustainable new home (BREEAM ‘Excellent’).
Sustainable Urban Design
These courses, created in partnership with the Prince’s Foundation, explain why the need to develop sustainable communities has never been greater. Land use, ecological factors, mass migration and many other sources of stress are affecting community life. These factors, combined with the need for job creation, mean that we have to find new ways to develop our urban environment.
