Sustainable Spring

Published: 15th August 2022

It's easy to be sustainable this spring with a huge events schedule hitting campus.

Sustainable 630x380

From enjoying a picnic, to scoring some new clothes, or just enjoying a drink at the pub, take part and know that even small changes can make a big difference.

Ok, it's not technically spring yet, but if you want to get a jump start, reacquainting yourself with your bicycle is a good way to start preparing for spring. Speed date a bicycle will kick off the events schedule on 23 August, with activities running right through September.
