It's Green Week!

25 April 2016 | Story by Newsroom

Celebrate Freedom Day by hiking to the block house, riding a bike to campus, taking part in a clothing swap or attending a talk focusing on how you can take action to live more sustainably.

These are among the activities planned for Green Week – the annual UCT Green Campus Initiative (GCI) which is aimed at raising awareness around sustainability on campus.

GCI is a volunteer organisation that was started by a handful of staff and students in 2007. The university has also been a member of the International Sustainable Campus Network since 2011 and, as such, has made a commitment to more sustainable practices.

Another initiative scheduled for this week is a plan to to find out what is preventing students from cycling to campus by asking them to fill in a survey. GCI is currently working on a new rental proposal for the Jammie bikes to encourage their use on and around campus.

For the full Green Week programme, which runs from 25 to 29 April 2016, visit the GCI Facebook page.
