One of the great things about working at Bournemouth University is that it takes the challenges posed by climate change seriously. The student portal contains its own dedicated Environment section
to help you lead a more sustainable life while here at BU.
With 17,000 students and 1,500 staff living, working and learning at Bournemouth University we naturally have a significant effect on both our local environment and our whole world, whether from our car exhausts, the energy we use or the things we throw away. Therefore we have a responsibility to reduce our environmental impacts as much as possible.
To reinforce this message, the University is putting events to raise awareness of environmental issues, including a Green Week 18-22 October:
A weeks worth of events, talks and activities covering all aspects of green student life from making your own bag for life, ethical travelling and volunteering advice, Give and Take swap shops to getting your bike fixed up by the bike doctor.
More details can be found on the green week programme leaflet (pdf, 254kb).
