This academic year both our Fairtrade and Green ambassadors collaborated with Green Society to create and host our very first Green Week! The week focused on sustainable volunteering opportunities and Fairtrade events to coincide with the annual Fairtrade fortnight.
Darren Hannay, Green ambassador 2018/2020 said “Green week was a week to raise awareness of the issues that we as a society are doing to the environment and what we could do to try and change the amount that goes into landfill"
We had a jam packed timetable from Fairtrade breakfasts to make your own soap sessions, a sustainable fashion talk and our monthly eco shop visit from Harrys House Refills popping in to offer students refillable and more sustainable products to help cut down on single use plastic.
Check out our timetable to see all the activities that happened during Green Week lead by our student ambassadors - and even featuring some incredible collaboration with our clubs, societies and volunteering partnerships!
