Staff and students team up to Go Green this February

Posted by rmt22 at Feb 03, 2016 09:35 AM |
From a jumper sale to building bug hotels, get involved during Go Green Week!

As part of the Environment Team’s Sustainable Development Programme students have been asked to put on their eco hats and work on a number of environment and sustainability projects.

Go Green Week is the culmination of many of those projects. This annual celebration of all things sustainable always has loads of exciting activities and this year is no different. Our students have gone way beyond their brief, focusing on sustainable work, but also venturing into the importance of Healthy Living.

Go Green Week this year runs from Monday 8 – Sunday 14 February, All events will take place in the Car Park space outside the SU, Victoria Park, or Queens Hall Foyer in the case of bad weather. You can listen to an interview with Zoe Thomson from our Environment Team to find out more about what's going on.
