Go Green Week 2018

Go Green banner Your chance to get involved in this national campaign.

Go Green Week (GGW) is a national campaign for students to raise awareness about climate change that was started by People and Planet. This campaign is very important in raising awareness about issues of climate change and sustainability. A whole week of activities is the perfect chance for us to raise awareness and we can hopefully help many students to see why climate change and trying to live more sustainably in order to reduce climate change, is a such an important issue. With rising temperatures breaking records around the globe, we have already begun to see the disastrous effects of climate change and the worst is yet to come, that’s why it is more important than ever that people hear about this issue and learn what they can do to help.
