Aim2Sustain is a business sustainability competition for year 10-13 to create a sustainable solution for a local business.

The project can be about a particular area in the nominated business to help improve the business sustainability outputs or about how the whole business might improve their green credentials 

How to get involved?

Working in teams of no more than five, you will be required to link with a local business and identify a key area for your project on sustainability. With information from the business and in your groups you need to research and identify sustainable ways to change the business operations to facilitate a more sustainable way to operate. 

You will be required to present a project plan on your sustainability solution at a University event.

Group presentations of the Sustainability Project Plan should be no more than 10 minutes long and should include:

  • an overview of the business they have selected
  • the area of sustainability that they will focus on
  • a clear objective for the project
  • strategy for creating a solution (the overall way you will meet the objective)
  • details of the tactics (things that you will do)
  • a timeline for activities
  • details of human resource requirement 
  • a budget to cover costs to complete the project
  • details of how to measure the success of the project

Project timeline

November and December

Identify your team (lead school to send details through of confirmed project teams). Work out your project timeline. Work in your teams at school with tutor support. Connect with your University project lead each month for progress support (online Microsoft Teams).


Submit your final presentation no later than 13th January.

Presentations to take place as part of the opening activity for the new Catalyst building on the Stoke-on-Trent campus. Winners announced on the same day.
