UCD Green Week hosted by Eco UCD

4th-7th February

This week, the UCD’s Eco Society is hosting Green Week which includes a series of talks, demonstrations and walks to help inform attendees about how to live a greener lifestyle. As part of the UCD Green Campus Initiative, Green Week has brought together several different UCD societies to try tackle the increasing number of problems that our environment is facing. One of the major focuses of this year’s event is food waste, which we can all agree is a massive problem here in Ireland. There are three events dealing with that we’re particularly looking forward to including zero waste cooking with chef Adrian Martin, a talk about alternative uses for food waste and a panel discussion about food waste in general.

While attendees might mainly consist of students of all ages, the public are free to attend this week’s events too, so click here to find out more details.
