Middlesex to ‘Go Green’ for the environment

Go Green Week taking place at the Hendon campus from 2 to 4 March

Bee keeperMiddlesex University is preparing to 'go green' for a week of environmentally friendly initiatives next month.

From 2 to 4 March between 11am and 3pm, the Rickett Quadrangle will play host to a number of eco activities designed to get students and staff thinking green.

These will include an Energy Bike that will allow participants to feel how much energy is required to keep their gadgets on standby, an Eco Drive Simulator to help drivers reduce their fuel consumption and a session from the Barnet Bee Keepers.

FairTrade food prizes will be on offer each day and anyone who brings in their unwanted clothes for recycling will receive a Marks and Spencer voucher.

"Sustainability is a top priority for the University, and to build on our success, we have developed Go Green Week encouraging all staff and students to increase their participation in our green initiatives," commented Director of Estates and Facilities Andrew Dickie.

Last month, Middlesex achieved a 'First' in the People and Planet green rankings, with the university placing 24th out of 151 UK institutions in its league table of sustainable institutions.
