During the recent environment week at the University, some of the History of Art students took part in running a stand in the Students Union, it was a lot of fun and passers by were keen to try on the mortar board hat and have their photo taken.
There was a lot going on for Environment week, a free bike clinic, vegetarian and vegan food, advice on greener travel during gap-years and importantly, launching a campaign to get sessions relating to environmental awareness included in the university curriculum.

Or maybe you think the damage has been done and the greenest thing one can possibly do is hang oneself from the nearest tree? Comments box below!
