The SU’s sustainability week: a week for the planet

By Karolina Bohacova |

Falmouth and Exeter’s Student Union yesterday launched their 2019 sustainability week, following the declaration of a climate emergency by both universities earlier this year.

The events, which are mostly organized on the Penryn Campus, are ranging from film screenings to practical workshops.

The first sustainability week is on from Monday the 4th November to Friday the 8th.

Offset your carbon footprint by bulb and flower planting, help the environment by picking up litter with the Beach Clean Society or get educated about the secret life of solitary bees.

If you prefer to get your hands dirty, join the Green Living society on Wednesday at the Walled Garden for sowing seeds and preparing veg beds.

It is never too late to learn more about recycling either – help the FX Plus volunteers during their big bin rummage.

If you are protecting the environment by cycling to lectures, don’t forget to check your bike at the Bike repair workshop on Thursday, and pick up reflectors for the late night journeys from the library.

The Sustainability week will end with the Climate Positivity Evening at the Upper Stannary on Friday, the 8th of November, to discuss the week, generate ideas for the future and celebrate all things done with a bowl of soup from Penryn Produce and a film screening of ‘Tomorrow’.
