This chapter presents an overview of the experience of 30 undergraduates in their second year of the International Business Strategy degree at Anglia Ruskin University working as eco-auditors for the Green Impact Initiative; a pro-environmental behavioural programme co-ordinated by the National Union of Students (NUS). The originality of the case study lies in its articulation of the practical experience of students working as university campus eco-auditors, and in the academic context of the coursework for International Business and Environmental Management. The chapter also includes some ideas regarding the use of art-based methodologies and aesthetics in the promotion of systems thinking, critical thinking and self-reflection among the participants: students, academics and environmental officers.
