October 2017 saw a group of students undertaking a Harper Adams Campus “Sustainability Walk” as part of their study for the module “Contemporary Countryside and Environmental Issues”. The purpose of the walk was to show the students how various sustainable technologies are being employed on campus to provide renewable energy and reduce the carbon footprint of the university.
During the walk the group visited one of the University’s pump rooms where they met the university Estates Foreman Arthur Broadhurst (looking very bright in his hi-vis jacket picture below). There he explained the function of the pump room and how Harper Adam’s new cutting edge sustainable energy project had been integrated with existing infrastructure to provide hot water and heating from sustainably sourced fuel.
The walk was part of sustainability being an imbedded part of the studies at Harper Adams University.
