    Harper Adams gets set to Go Green

    Posted 2 February 2009

    Go Green Week, March 2-6

    Over the next few weeks, groups across the UK will be raising awareness of the huge negative impact our universities, colleges and schools are having on the climate.

    Universities, colleges and schools emit 12.3 million tonnes of CO2 every year, not including the millions more emitted by people travelling to and from these institutions.

    Harper Adams is ready to play its part, with an impressive line-up of events organised by the students’ Environmental Conservational and Sustainability Society for the week of March 2-6. The ECSS students are passionate about improving our world, and want to help Harper Adams become a greener place.
