Get Involved in Go Green Week 2012!

What is Go Green Week?

Go Green Week is People & Planet’s annual national week of action on climate change in schools, colleges and universities in partnership with the NUS. From 6-12 February 2012, 1000s of students & staff  will be mobilised to raise awareness and launch carbon-cutting activities and projects on their campuses. It’s a great opportunity for students and student unions to work with staff and their student societies to showcase a positive ‘transition vision’ of their universities and kick start creative practical initiatives for a low-carbon future.

How will it work?

Activities will be themed around sustainable behaviours to encourage students to eat sustainably on Meat free Monday, use green transport on Travel Light Tuesday, get recycling on Zero Waste Wednesday and reduce their energy consumption on Switch-Off Thursday. Students will also come together for a national day of action on Friday 10 February to send a message to the government to commit to the education sector’s transition to a low carbon future.

How can People & Planet support you?

You can order a resource pack from the P&P website with all the resources you need to put on an amazing Go Green Week such as a media pack and everything you need to put together your very own posters and fliers. You will also receive goodies to help you put on events such as Can Film Festival screenings, Come Veg with Me dinner events and energy-saving advice clinics.
