About My Role
The Ethical & Environmental Officer role is to represent students Ethical and Environmental interests and to campaign on any relevant issues.
Shwmae pawb! | Hi everyone! I’m Punyaja, your Ethical and Environmental (EandE) Officer 2021/22 and excited to take up the role.
I come from Pune in India where I completed my undergrad and am currently pursuing my master's in Physiotherapy from Cardiff University since January 2021. I love interacting with individuals and try to get involved in as many extra-curricular activities as possible. I have been a part of multiple campaigns and drives in India focused on cleanliness, hygiene and general awareness.
I am passionate about the environment and closely follow the factors affecting it, which are greatly influenced by our actions as a species. Ethics and Environment, in a broad sense, have been global highlights amidst the pandemic and there has been an evident and accelerating climate change that we are witnessing. I try my best towards living sustainably and look forward to promoting it. I firmly believe that small changes indeed make a big impact and a change begins from within us!
If you have any questions, issues or ideas about anything, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
My main priorities for the year include:
- Understand and promote the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle)
- Help make the campuses more sustainable and environment friendly
- Create and promote ways to limit/ eliminate food wastage
- Direct students towards various resources available in the university (general promotion)
