Go Green Week 2018

Go Green Week

From 19th-23rd February the University and Beds SU ran their very own Go Green Week campaign with a number of activities planned to encourage students and staff to be greener.

There was a theme for each day of the week, between Monday and Friday, to provide further details about the University's sustainablitlity activities and events on campus and offers at our restaurants and cafés, to get us all thinking about being a little more environmentally friendly.

Beds SU also ran a number of activities including a Go Green Fair, sustainability Panel, film screenings and much more. Please find all the details at www.bedssu.co.uk

Thermal Mug offer

To support our students and staff in being greener, the University will be selling University of Bedfordshire branded thermal mugs for just £1. The full cost of these mugs are being subsidised by the University to try and reduce the number of disposable cups that are used on campus. The thermal mugs can be bought at cafe outlets at our Luton and Bedford campuses.

Those that are using their own mug, or one of our new thermal mugs, when buying a hot drink at our are entitled to 10p off the cost of all hot drinks.

Staff competition

To kick off the campaign, the University ran a competition to find out who our greenest colleague is?

We asked all staff to provide some brief information about the sustainable activities that they undertake during their everyday activities at work, home or in the community, which contributes to environmental sustainability. The winner was awared a branded thermal mug and a top of the range filtered water bottle.

The Universitys Head of Sustainability, Adam Higgin, picked a winner by judging all entires.

The winner was Dr Precious N Sango a Lecturer in Applied Social Studies, in the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences for her work collecting and sending educational text books to rural schools in Nigeria.
