Earth Week 2015

21 Jan 2015

From 9 to 13 February the Students’ Union will be running ‘Earth Week’ across the University campus

Earth Week

Earth week is a series of events which explore the future of our world and the issues that we need to tackle in our lifetimes. All Staff are invited to attend any of the events or lectures.

Earth Week took place for the first time last year and won the NUS’ Education for Sustainable Development award. Now, in its second year, it is looking to improve upon last year’s impressive programme of events.

Each day will have a theme, which will explore sustainability and wider societal problems we face. The days will be organised around the topics of Food and Consumption, Global Inequalities, Humanitarian Day, A Green Economy and Energy. At 5pm each day, there will be a talk in University Place focusing on these issues.

There will also be a food festival, a green jobs information fair, BikeFest, a free masters course from HCRI and much more.

Further information and the full programme will be available in the next week or so online at .

Please attend where possible and support the Students’ Union.
