Go Green

Go Green takes place from Monday 6th March – Sunday 12th March and is a chance for us to stop and think about how we can make small changes to make a big difference. This year we will be working alongside Coventry University, Coventry City Council and University of Warwick and Warwick Volunteers. So there’s going to be loads to get involved with! Keep an eye out for more information coming soon!

Throughout the week we’ll have various activities and stalls helping you discover more about being “green.” Learn how easy it is to be green and how big an impact a little change can be if we all make small changes.
