Green Fortnight: 14 days of sustainability and climate action for 2022

Our annual festival of eco ideas, events and smart living takes place from Monday 31 October to Sunday 13 November 2022.

Find out about what UWE Bristol and The Student Union are doing to tackle climate change and protect nature. See how progress is possible and what you can do to take part.
