It’s Go Green Week, here’s what’s happening

Get involved in a more sustainable future


The only thing that could make Sussex Uni any more green: Go Green Week. Join in for fun events and educating experiences, all sustainable and environmentally friendly, of course.

Monday started with a bang. The start of Go Green Week already saw six successful events; including topics such as food waste; helping bees; an Ecosia campaign and why riding to work benefits us and the environment.
