Go Green Week 2009

Love GreenThe annual Go Green Week returns to campus between the 23rd and 27th February as part of a national week long event to raise awareness of green issues
Go Green Week forms the cornerstone of People and Planet’s environmental campaign and with a variety of activities occurring across the country, it is the biggest student-led environment week in the UK.

Tuesday sees an Environmental Question Time at Warwick - student political party representatives will join the panel debate on environmental issues. On the same day, a verbal remedies poetry slam will take place.

Wednesday’s events include conservation work around campus (meet on the Piazza and join the work behind Rootes at any point during the day) a careers panel focusing on ‘green energy and the environment’, as well as a debate at 6pm, on economics and climate change.

Thursday includes a group cycle, starting from the Parish Church in Leamington, as well as a free bike surgery on the piazza throughout the day. In addition, a Mercedes hybrid car and green energy machine will be on show in the piazza.

The week will conclude on Friday 27th with a Student Switch Off talk, farmers market, organic and vegetarian food demonstrations and workshops and a green careers panel.
