South Thames College has won the prestigious 2012 Green Gown Award in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category, from a strong field of 5 other finalists.

Sadiq Khan MP will celebrate the Award with a local presentation to Sue Rimmer, Principal of South Thames College

The Green Gown Awards recognise exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken in tertiary education across the UK
This award was won for the project carried out in the Furzedown Low Carbon Zone with the Greener Jobs Alliance, Transition Town Tooting, and other valued local partners.
That’s fantastic recognition of hard work, and will help enormously with the profile (and funding!) of further projects.

For all the detail, see the Winner’s brochure: on page 4 there’s the detail about our project –  including a picture of a TTT Carbon Conversations workshop in action in Furzedown. Go to the Awards website at

We made this video in spring 2012 about the project – do have another look at
