Green Fortnight

Our annual festival of eco ideas, events and smart living took place from 30 October to 12 November 2023.

Find out what UWE Bristol and The Student's Union at UWE are doing to tackle climate change and protect nature.

Green Fortnight is all about showing the progress taking place at the University and the many ways students and staff can get involved.

Join events from in-depth seminars to art workshops, our in-person and online events are a great opportunity for all to explore ideas, meet different people and try something new.
