Following the success of the Big Biology day and virtual Great Green Gathering, Staffordshire University are busy organising a similar event for 2021 in association with International Green Week, which takes place from from Monday 31 May to Friday 4 June 2021, and this year is themed ‘Zero Pollution Ambition’.

A family-friendly and fun-filled day, the public will be invited to join experts from across Staffordshire University and the local community for lots of fun and educational activities for all ages. This will be a face-to-face and live streamed event that produces zero net carbon – the aim is to offset all the carbon that is created by running and preparing for the gathering, and to award prizes that also have a positive impact on our environment.

The Great Green Gathering – Going Greener presents a fantastic opportunity for raising public awareness of sustainable issues and biodiversity and the benefits it can bring to health, wellbeing, industry and environment. If, as a sben member, you feel  you could attend and run a workshop, stand, participate in talks, or provide material to be streamed online Staffordshire University would love to hear from you. Please fill out this online form to express your interest in being involved.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email Eleanor Atkins via greenerstaffs@staffs.ac.uk or telephone 01782 295941.
