Newsha Modjrian and Nerxhana Tallushi of the class of MUrCS 2020, together with three other Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) students, participated in the SHAPE Sustainability Impact Projects, organized by The British Academy (BA) and Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK). This brought together students from different disciplines across social sciences, humanities, and the arts, to develop solutions to real-life sustainability challenges experienced by their university or local community. Newsha and Nerxhana’s project “How can the University work with marginalised young people in areas of multiple deprivation in Glasgow to the benefit of both GCU and the Community(ies) in question?” is also in line with the Common Good mission of GCU. Competing with 11 other projects presented by teams from England, Wales and Scotland, the MUrCS team was one of three awarded £5000 from British Academy to support staff and students to collaborate on progressing their ideas and bringing their solutions to life in the 2022-23 academic year.
