What is Go Green Week?

Go Green Week is a week of Green Action that takes place on campus during mid February. People and Planet run this national week of action to raise awareness on university campus's about sustainability issues that affect them. This year we will be letting you decide when you hold your day of action, any day in term time between December - March. We've had some great action days in the past, from a Zumbathon to Biodiversity Bingo. It's great fun and is well worth all the hard work put in!
