The WEEE Sustainability Exhibition was held on 20th and 21st March in the main foyer of the Belfast Campus of Ulster University during the SOS SDG Teach In campaign month, with approx 300 University staff and students, members of the public and a group of visiting school pupils engaging with the activities. School of Engineering undergrads showcased their research and collected data for their projects themed on ‘Reimagining White Goods WEEE’ and ‘Identifying Solutions to Vape WEEE’. The teardown of a washing machine attracted significant attention and generated great ideas on how white goods WEEE could be re-designed into items, including a vertical wind generator. The event was facilitated by staff from the School of Engineering and Belfast School of Art, with three members of staff from the City and Neighbourhood Services Department at Belfast City Council (BCC) sharing resources and advice. The Northern Ireland Resources Network (NIRN) and the Ulster Society of Student Engineers (UUSE) also provided support and resources.
