The Celebration of Sustainability 2015 event celebrated all the hard work put in by staff and students  on environmental initiatives this year, and was a great success! The event was hosted by Bob Ward from the Grantham Research Institute and saw LSE Alum Rishi Madlani give an inspirational talk on building connections and challenging current structures to bring about sustainable change.
