Students Take Action For A Greener World

Juggling student life whilst working in the office can be hard at times, but it also comes alongside many benefits. 

For example, working with Green Achiever for the past two years has expanded my knowledge into green issues and has reflected in my actions, as I treat the environment with a new found respect. 

So when I notice other students taking action, no matter how big or how small, I believe more media attention should be drawn to their efforts - (We are campaigning for our future, after all

People & Planet  are an example of this. 

They are a large student organisation campaigning to ...'Protect the environment, defend human rights and end world poverty', which I found through The National Union of Students (NUS). 

The website includes how to get involved, information and news on climate change, and how you too can take action by donating here

Their organisation also ran a GO GREEN WEEK from 6th-10th February 2012, which you can find information on here.
