Sophie Schremser | Language, Culture and Communication Contact Sophie

Week 10 is Go Green Week 2018 !

It is a collaboration between University of Warwick, University of Coventry, Coventry City Council, CoventryCAN and many others.

I have always been proud of the way our SU promotes green-thinking and sustainability. From recycling, to ethically sourced tea and coffee, the Warwick SU is constantly promoting and bio, green, and eco-friendly environment.

This week you will see all the food outlets on campus offering a series of specials to celebrate green week! This is your opportunity to learn and understand your impact to the world. Small day-to-day choices can make a positive difference.

Waste Not Wednesday 14.03.2018

Cup Down on Waste!

From 14:00 to 17:00, you can join, on the piazza, a workshop with the aim to increase awareness on cup waste on campus. This workshop, besides being a good lesson on environment-friendly behaviour, will also offer fun activities. From making cut-out cup tea lights, to cup sculptures (during which you will also be able to donate to a small local charity), you will fight waste on campus in an active and fun way.
