Easy to be Green



Press release issued: 5 October 2018

An interactive art wall, a smoothie bicycle, various talks and stalls as well as plenty of freebies throughout the day. These are just some of the free activities available to all Bristol students and staff at Monday's sustainability fair. It will be a green takeover!

Come along to our sustainability event being held in the main atrium of the Life Sciences Building and celebrate all things green.

There will be plenty of freebies from our wonderful guests throughout the day.

The aim of the event is to create an awareness of sustainability issues and to show that even the smallest of changes can be beneficial. We would like to highlight how the University of Bristol is contributing to a greener future on both a local and global scale. If staff and students can take home the ideas and inspiration that the event hopes to promote, then the event has been a success. We have also invited local Bristol charities and businesses to further demonstrate that Bristol strives to be a green capital.
