  • Food Waste Week
    From Monday 1 March to Sunday 7 March it's the UK’s first national week of action on wasting food. We have partnered with The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) charity and Love Food Hate Waste to take action against food wastage. We will also be taking part in the #FoodWasteActionWeek Challenge taking place on Monday 1 March - Sunday 7 March 2021. Will you join us?

  • Green Week
    Green Week is an annual partnership between the University of Warwick, Coventry University, our Student Unions, Coventry City Council, Warwick District Council and you! It’s a time when we celebrate the environment, promote what we do across the region, educate on how you can be more sustainable in your day-to-day lives and take action. This year’s Green Week which runs from Monday 8 March to Sunday 14 March will be entirely online, so you can join in no matter where in the world you are! Keep an eye out for new events and don’t forget to book to avoid disappointment! Visit Green Week's website and the Green Week Facebook page.
