Go Green Week 2020 is here!

The University and the Students’ Guild have teamed up with a range of student societies, academics and local community members for Go Green Week 2020.

This five-day event takes place all week (10-14 Feb) and there will be a range of events and activities to encourage people to think about environmental issues and support people to take positive action in their own lives.
