Walk Talk Walk launched at the University of Warwick Campus

In June this year, Coventry got its first Walk Talk Walk global organisation called Run Talk Run, which was founded by Jess Robson in London in December 2017. The idea was to make movement and wellbeing support less intimidating and more accessible in the communities. The walks take place every Thursday evening at 18:30, starting from the Warwick Sports and Wellness Hub. The routes are planned around the campus area and are usually 3 to 5k long, taking about an hour to complete.

Managing the biodiversity of our campus – works on site

The Estates team are required undertake regular tree surveys across campus to check the individual health of trees and the impact of each tree on the biodiversity around them; these tree surveys may, at times, may require us to prune or fell trees if they are deemed to be high risk, diseased or unsafe. We wanted to ensure you knew that, within our current tree management arrangements, our policy is that for every one tree felled we will replace with either 5m hedgerow or two new trees on campus.
