London South Bank University is holding its annual ‘Go Green Week’ this week. A range of events will be taking place to discuss problems such as littering, sustainability and how LSBU can combat these global problems on a local scale, Mariah Ayub reports
Kicking off this Go Green Week is an inspirational panel event taking place on Tuesday 6th from 1-4pm, free entry and everyone is welcome.
The event consists of activities to bring together students, recent alumni and entrepreneurs to discuss how developing business and green policies can coexist. The event will include entrepreneurs who have already successfully started businesses in this area. You will hear about how they came up with their ideas, what they have done since and the challenges they have faced on the way. There will be a chance for you to ask questions and meet other students and staff interested in similar issues.
LSBU is renowned for it’s efforts with the environment, winning multiple awards last year. Including being shortlisted as a finalist for the Green Gown Awards which recognise best practice for sustainability related activity across the University Sector and is organised by the Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges(EAUC).
