Go Green Week: Get Involved
10th-16th of February is 2014’s Go Green Week, called for by student action group People & Planet. Go Green week is part of a larger international campaign to encourage divestment from fossil fuels, a move that the University of Edinburgh last week indicated that it is considering.
14th February is the biggest day of Go Green Week; students at many universities will be delivering giant Valentine’s cards to their chancellors demanding that fossil fuels be dumped, and urging that they ‘stop in the name of love’. If you think this sounds like an excellent alternative to the usual Valentine’s schmaltz, or if you have any ideas for further Go Green Week action at Glasgow, head to People & Planet’s website. This is a student-led initiative, so People & Planet welcome input and ideas. They are concerned about more than just climate change too, so have a look around the site to find out about getting involved in campaigns on issues such as sweatshops and workers’ rights.
