Leamington students invite all to ‘go green’ next week

A GREEN party at Bath Place Community Venture in Leamington will celebrate the efforts of all taking part in an environmental awareness week at Warwick University.

Debates, talks, bicycle rides, a fashion show, live dance and environmentally-friendly menus are just a part of the agenda for the student-led ‘Go Green’ week, starting on Monday.

The six-day programme aims to reach a wide audience, stimulate discussion and prompt people to think about how to tackle climate change.

Highlights include talks by Caroline Lucas MP and Dr Rosemary Collier, an ethical fashion show and a climate forum.

There will be workshops on environmental activism, conservation work, ‘guerilla gardening’ and repairing and reusing clothes, live street performances, art displays, film screenings including The Age of Stupid, while cyclists can join a ‘bike train’ from Leamington to the university campus on Tuesday and a ‘green party’ at Bath Place will take place next Saturday night, where there will be live music and free food, with proceeds going to the Leamington Community Kitchen, which is based at the venture.
