October Events and Activities

We are continuing a range of activities online or in small, socially distanced groups such as the allotment tours. We have an MS Teams site for the University Allotment and the Digitial Climate Cafes, please email greenchester@chester.ac.uk if you would like to join the teams.

On 14th October the University hosted a Ted Countdown event. Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. If you missed it you can watch the video here.

Go Green Week 

We are starting to plan events with Chester Students' Union for Go Green Week 2021.  There will be events and activities across different campuses and we would like to hear from students/staff that have ideas for events or activities we could run. Last year's calendar of events is detailed below.

Tree Planting at Kingsway 

In November 2019, students, staff and members of the local community helped us plant over 150 trees at Kingsway. Trees have many benefits; they store carbon, reduce pollution and provide flood protection. It is hoped that by increasing the amount of green space available on campus, students and staff will have a space to connect with nature. Over the lifetime of the trees, we hope that they will provide a habitat for wildlife and promote clean air.

Tree planting sessions 

Friday 6th March - 10am to 11am
Monday 9th March - 10am to 11am
Tuesday 10th March - 2pm to 3pm

If you would like to come along to any of the above tree planting sessions, whether you are a student, staff or part of the local community, please email Green Chester
