Event details

This event, part of NTU Green Week, is being hosted by the Sustainable Development Team and the NTSU to bring people together to learn more, share ideas, network, and help shape NTU’s plans for reducing our carbon footprint. You'll have an opportunity to to share your views about which sustainability topics are most important to you, through virtual voting and posting of ideas. So whether it's air travel, switching to more of a plant-based diet, or finding ways to cut out single use plastic, we want to hear more about what matters most to you.

The event will feature a series of workshops, allowing for a deeper dive into topics such as plastics, recycling and protecting hedgehogs, where you'll learn practical skills for addressing sustainability challenges now and in the future.
