Trinity College Green Week 2015 - ‘Go Green 2015’
Trinity College held their 13th Annual Green Week from the 16th - 20th February 2015. The aim of the week was to highlight the need for every member of the College Community to ‘Go Green in 2015’ by identifying with the Green Campus Programme and working even harder to achieve our sustainability targets.
The programme for the week, which is produced by a range of Student Societies, was more expansive than ever with something for ‘all tastes’ - from walks, talks, quizzes, competitions, a Green Jobs Fair, a travel survey, free ‘bike health checks’, etc. Further details are available by clicking on this link for a programme of events.
Green Week was launched by Senator David Norris at 1.15 pm on Monday the 16th February at the Examination Hall, on Front Square. The launch included a display of the latest technology in electric vehicles, the presentation of a cheque to Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children and an address by the Provost, Dr. Paddy Prendergast. A novel feature this year was the presence one of the founders of Foodcloud who spoke about ‘Green Entrepreneurship’. Foodcloud is a community-based social enterprise that brings food businesses and charities together with an easy-to-use and reliable platform, matching those with too much food with those who have too little. Iseult Ward and Aoibheann O’Brien, co-founders of Foodcloud, are both graduates of Trinity College.
