Congratulations to the student volunteers and guest visitors who made Go Green Week 2017 a great success.

From the busy bag-making workshop, to crowds forming around the cheap bike sale, campus was bustling with activity last week.

17 events were held, to celebrate and promote a more sustainable University, a leading example in the face of global climate change. Whilst the Environment Team works to reduce the environmental impact of UoL's buildings and systems, it is down to all of us as individuals to take responsibility in our daily actions, and go green! The premise of the annual Go Green Week is to help everyone make these small but important changes.
