Sustainable Sainji

The Sustainable Sainji Programme is led by Anglia Ruskin’s Global Sustainability Institute. All students, staff and ARU alumni are eligible to participate in this project. You can find out more about the programme here and reports on what we have done in previous years below.

Unfortunately, we were not able to run this programme in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but hope to be able to restart this programme and return to Sainji once restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so. We will update this website with details of when this programme will run again.

If you are interested in applying to be involved in Sustainable Sainji when it next runs please register your interest by emailing and include your course and year of study (or graduation) if a current or past student.
