02.12.2021

Staff and students from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David Carmarthen Business School recently took part in a beach clean at Llansteffan.

Sustainability plays a vital part in all business programmes at Carmarthen Business School. It’s a theme that plays a vital inclusion in every aspect of the course, especially raising awareness and focusing on the current negative impact of global warming.

Lecturer Navdeep Randhawa from UWTSD Carmarthen Business School said,

“In recent light of the COP26 conference, we recognise the importance of every individual making their contribution to protect the environment and reduce the impact of global warming. After weeks of discussion on the different angles of how businesses can be more sustainable, it was great to participate in a local beach clean. It really opened everyone’s eyes to how little effort it takes to play our part- yet everyone working together, we can make a bigger impact.”

In one module on Global Business Challenges, the focus is on all the different factors that contribute to the effects of global warming. During the module, the learners play a part in identifying how they can reduce their carbon footprint. As part of the module students visited Llansteffan Beach where they get an opportunity to do their bit for the environment, with the hope that more and more people will suit and engage in sustainable practices.

Another module on the course offers students about learning in the digital era, and the focus is around pillars of sustainability. During this module, students must complete tasks based around sustainability.

Lecturer Jessica Shore added,

“Our aim is to create graduates with an awareness and appetite for sustainable practices.  By engaging them in activities such as the beach clean they will appreciate the scale of the problem and gain an understanding of our responsibility individually and collectively to contribute to a healthier world.”

Navdeep Randhawa also mentioned,

"Our students played an active part in supporting the importance of maintaining sustainability from a business perspective, they started with a beach clean at Llansteffan.  If everyone plays their part, whether big or small, we shall see a difference.''

A level 4 student that took part at the beach clean said,

"Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own actions, it is disgraceful some of the things we came across, more bins need to be allocated."
