Sustainability at UH - Go Green Week 2023

Go Green Week 2023

Go Green Week 2023 is coming to Herts w/c 6th March.

Living a sustainable lifestyle brings multiple benefits: it can save you money and improve mental health and wellbeing, all whilst protecting our local areas, wildlife, and the planet.

Go Green Week is your opportunity to take part in the sustainability discussion, learn how to live a sustainable and healthy lifestyle and communicate about climate change, which is increasingly important for employability as society strives for a sustainable future.

During the week you will get to take part in different sustainability activities put on by University staff and students.
