Students inspired to go green

Worcester Editorial 16th Jun, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

HUNDREDS of students discovered how they could play a key role in reducing the country’s carbon footprint when they attended a business event.

The University of Worcester hosted the Your Green Future event this month, which gave 11 to 19 year olds the chance to work with industry experts and sustainability students.

The annual event promoted locally emerging sustainable business models and cutting edge technologies, which are looking for appropriately skilled young people. The groups of students were also able to get a greater understanding of the low carbon economy and the crucial role of science, technology, engineering and maths plays in creating a greener environment.

Worcester MP Robin Walker said: “I’m delighted to be at the Your Green Future event as it’s a fantastic way of including young people to the green agenda and talking to young boys and girls about the opportunities that are going to be in the workplace in the future.

“The university do a really good job working with local businesses and schools to promote the green agenda, which is so important in making our planet a better place.”
