From putting their best foot forward to exploring entrepreneurship, the University of Gloucestershire is hosting a range of events to celebrate World Environment Week.
The University’s Students’ Union (SU) is showing Al Gore’s movie about climate change, An Inconvenient Truth, on Monday June 7 at The Park campus.
The film starts at 5.30pm, TC014, and entry is free though donations to the SU Environment Committee are gratefully received.
On Wednesday June 9 the regular Cheltenham Well Walk leaves from Park, Elwes Reception, for a Merestones Meander or Montpellier Mooch followed by tea and coffee in the refectory, while University staff are being encouraged to try a guided walk around their campus.
On Friday June 11, from 10am until noon, Elisabeth Bittner presents Entrepreneurship for Sustainability: A Free Masterclass, at TC002a, Francis Close Hall campus.
The event is open to staff, students and the public and explores how enterprising skills and behaviours can support sustainable development.
University supported events include Between A and Bee, a collaboration between the SITE10 arts festival, Walking the Land and the Global Bee Project (GBP). The University has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the GBP, and together with other connected artists and scientists to walk the Cotswold Way in a work of cross-pollination and data mapping for bee and biodiversity awareness to link the SITE10 and Bath Fringe Festival.
