Nathan won the best poster prize, judged by Ryan from the  library, for his poster on household waste flow anaylsis in the UK context.

The alumni included 1 from the very first year of the MPhil in 2002, 12 from last year and 10 from 2011-12 who were celebrating 5 years since they completed the course.
