Students 'Go Green' to promote sustainability

STAFF, students and even toddlers at the University of Worcester got involved in a week of green activities to promote the importance of sustainability.

The annual Go Green Week saw a range of events hosted across the University’s campuses, including a photography exhibition, cooking demonstrations, nature trail and free rides in a student-powered Pedicab.

Students taking the Introduction to Sustainability elective module organised the week’s activities as part of their assessment, creating a different theme per week day including nature, travel, food, energy, re-use, recycle and more.

To promote more sustainable travel, there were sales of discounted bus tickets, bicycle repair workshops and the University was also loaned a Pedicab, by Marcus Sparrow.

Operating a service in Worcester for a number of years, the Pedicab is licenced to carry up to three passengers on a number of routes, including the riverside, Diglis and in the city centre.

Youngsters from the University’s nursery, Unitots, also got in on the week’s action, enjoying a nature trail, musical instrument workshop and a visit to the repair café.
