London Met prepares for Green Week 2018

The University is running it's annual Green Week from 12 - 16 March. Find out what's on offer and how you can get involved.

Date: 6 March 2018

For the seventh year running London Met is taking part in Green Week, a week dedicated to raising awareness of environmental issues.

From Monday 12 - Friday 16 March, London Met’s sustainability team have put together a jam-packed calendar for both staff and students to get involved in.

There are two main tours: a trip to the TRAID warehouse for a chance to find out what goes on behind the second hand charity shop, and a trip to Purfleet waste yard to see what happens when you dispose of your waste at London Met. Other tours include a chance to visit London Met's bees and a trip to the top of the Tower Building.

Other Green Week activities include a Fairtrade bake-off, coffee cup planting and a ‘battle of the bins’ competition.  

Rachel Ward, London Met’s Sustainability Manager said: “It will be the University's best Green Week yet. We have some fantastic events including a lecture on Biophilic design by Oliver Heath who has appeared on many TV programmes.  There is something for everyone at the Green Week.”

This year London Met societies, including the green society and the design society, are also getting involved by setting up their own stalls and workshops.

Keep up to date with all upcoming events on the sustainability page.
