Green Week 2020

Tuesday 27 October 2020

Single-use plastic in major sports events, a concrete safari, and Covid-19 are three of the topics covered in Green Week 2020. In a mix of panel discussions, talks, and practical actions, we invite students, staff and locals of St Andrews to be a part of a new beginning – climate action for a sustainable future.

After being hit by the pandemic in spring, we have made major changes to our lives. Even if sustainability occasionally has been compromised for our safety, we see this time as a springboard for a greener future. While we are facing challenges, we are in a unique position to envision and act for a better world.

For the love of life, take this opportunity to learn, get involved, and become inspired. We now present the programme for Green Week 2020.

Take care,
