LUCIA wins Sustainability Award

Life Uplifted by Change in Africa (LUCIA) is a charity founded and run by colleagues in Library Services. LUCIA and the University have won an award in the Community/Individual category of the ‘Best Staff and Community Scheme’ at the Birmingham Sustainability and Recycling Awards.

Sylvia Gardiner and Jane Colbourne (Library Services) went to the Birmingham Council House to collect the award from Councillor Lisa Trickett, Cabinet Member for a Green, Smart and Sustainable City, Birmingham City Council.  The award was presented for LUCIA’s sustainable development work in Ethiopia such as the fuel saving stoves project and work with other self-help groups and the Saria School.
