About this event

This event aims to inform students and staff at Warwick about the various important environmental sustainability projects happening across the campus - including our future strategy for further decreasing our university's carbon impact. The event is co-organised by the School for Cross-Faculty Studies and the Estates Team. The presentations will be followed by a wine reception.
