This week, Coventry University has set a ‘green’ agenda. From 11th till 15th February the University School of Art and Design is running various events to raise awareness of Green issues and the University’s contribution to a healthier, greener life.
The main issues to be brought up are the reducing of energy wastage and the improvement of recycling.

A competition is going to take place for people to give ideas towards plans to make the University more environmentally friendly. If you are particularly creative and ecology is something you stand for, this is your chance to win one of the prizes that are going to be given by the School. The categories are “Best Idea to Reduce Energy Wasting within the School” and “Best Piece of Work Made of Recycled Materials”.
A Fairtrade Coffee afternoon is taking place on Friday 15th February from 11am until 1 pm at the Graham Sutherland building. Everyone interested in the development of Green issues can join the School of Art and Design and have a taste of Fairtrade coffee and biscuits.
