Going Green with Go Green Week 2022
‘Go Green Week 2022’ comes from the incredible hard work of students and staff from Worcester University, ‘Sustainability Network’, who are passionate about bringing positive change to our environment through sustainability.
Sustainability seems to be trendy at the moment and I wish it never dies. If everyone was a bit more cautious about their environmental impact, it could significantly reduce the damage we cause to our planet.
The interactive activities were ideal for anyone keen to be more sustainable on a budget, and addressed issues such as: food waste, ethical sourcing with ‘Fair Trade Foundation’, local endangered species by encouraging gardening, awareness of wildlife and sustainable methods of food preservation.
Our young visitors from Oldbury Park Primary School were also very eager to get involved with therapy dogs from Pets As Therapy, sampling live vegan treats, making seed bombs and much more.
This voluntary experience has been personally rewarding and has contributed towards my Journalism degree, by giving me opportunities to develop my communication skills and expand my social network.
Every day offered something new, keeping me on my toes and teaching me to be more attentive and flexible within a team.
What stood out to me was the warm and passionate community, and as the week came to a close, I felt inspired to get more involved in the university’s environmental efforts, and hold myself to a higher sustainable standard.
